A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Tuesday slammed Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority for banking on foreign forces to build itself up.

Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks when responding to a question about Lai Ching-te's visit to the United States.

The one-China principle is the fundamental precondition and political foundation for China to develop relations with all other countries, including the United States, Ma said.

"We firmly oppose any form of official visits between Taiwan and countries that have diplomatic relations with us," Ma said, urging the United States to adhere to the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques.

"We once again warn the DPP authority that 'Taiwan independence' is a counter-current and a dead end," Ma said. "Anyone or any force that attempts to bank on foreign forces to build itself up will become the victim of its own evil deeds.
