Taiwan media says PLA commandeered civilian ships to practice tests near Matsu? response from the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office (Taiwan)

The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference this morning, with Taiwan Affairs Office spokesperson Zhu Fenglian presiding over the press conference.

Taiwan ETToday’s East Sen News cloud reporter: recently in Matsu Nangan near a large number of mainland sand pumping ship infestation, the public feel like “siege of the island,” the same. There are some voices in Taiwan suggesting that it is not the PLA that is requisitioning civilian boats for practice tests. What is the speaker’s assessment of this? Thank you.

Zhu Fenglian: I do not understand the specific situation you have mentioned. Isn’t the fact that the people of Taiwan have such and such associations or worries caused by the continuous provocations by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities and the separatist forces for “Taiwan independence” that have created tensions and complications in the Taiwan Strait?
