China resolutely opposes US interference in Taiwan and the country's internal affairs by passing a series of so called Taiwan-related bills, as the US House of Representatives is expected to review  a"TAIPEI Act" on Wednesday morning, said Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, on Wednesday.

Ma made the statement during a Wednesday press conference when asked to comment on the likely passing of the Taiwan Allies International Protection and Enhancement Initiative (TAIPEI) Act, which stipulates US government will take active measures to support the island of Taiwan, reinforcing the US' unofficial ties with the island.

The Current Taiwan administration's pursuit to develop "diplomatic ties" is nothing but daydreaming and will never happen, Ma told the media.

He also warned that "the current Taiwan DPP administration is playing along with the USas it uses the  "Taiwan card," which will only harm cross-straits peace, and undermine the interests of compatriots on both sides, especially those from Taiwan."

"The bipartisan legislation is intended to strengthen Taiwan's standing around the world and comes in response to increased Chinese pressure intended to restrict Taiwan's international space and global diplomatic recognition," the bill sponsor John Curtis, a Republican member of the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and Nonproliferation, said in a statement.
