The two Taiwanese organizations have been banned from having any cooperation with mainland organizations and individuals.

His head has been banned from entering the mainland and the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao, reports the Bangkok Post.

Acting on instructions from Democratic Progressive Party officials, the two organizations have ruthlessly spread the idea of ​​”democracy,” “freedom” and “cooperation” under the guise of “academic exchanges” and “seminars.” “Taiwan independence” in the international arena, said Zhu Fenglian, spokesman for the office.

They have gone out of their way to involve themselves with anti-China forces, and have engaged in events that promote “one China, one Taiwan,” “two Chinas,” and other violations of the one-China principle. are trying. Taiwan’s so-called “international space”, Zhu added.

Meanwhile, China announced new sanctions on Friday against Hsiao Bi-Khim, Taiwan’s de facto ambassador to the United States, and imposed punitive measures on two US institutions that visited the island’s leader Tsai Ing-wen during her visit to the US. was hosted US allies – Guatemala and Belize, Kyodo News reported.

The measures were released after Tsai met with Speaker of the US House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday in California, angering Beijing, which claims the self-ruled democratic island as its own.

A spokesman for the ruling Communist Party’s Taiwan Affairs Office called Hsiao a “hardcore ‘Taiwan independence’ separatist” and banned him and his family members from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao.

China slapped similar sanctions measures last August, including an entry ban on Hsiao, in response to a visit to Taiwan by McCarthy’s predecessor Nancy Pelosi.

China, which regards Taiwan as a renegade province vowing to unite with the mainland by force if necessary, warned of retaliation ahead of talks between Tsai and the third-highest-ranking US official.

Taiwan’s foreign ministry criticized Beijing’s move, saying in a statement on Friday that conducting diplomatic activities is “a fundamental right of our head of state” and that “China has no right to interfere,” Kyodo News reported. .

The ministry claimed that China “exaggerated” by imposing the ban. It added, “Such deceitful behavior not only deepens the resentment of the Taiwanese people but also exposes the irrational and absurd nature of the Communist regime.”

The ministry said that coercion and repression “will only strengthen the Taiwanese government’s faith in freedom and democracy.”
