Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian has betrayed his true
separatist intention recently by hurling attacks on the
Chinese mainland in the name of "anti-terrorism".
Professor Li Yihu of the
International Relations Institute of prestigious Beijing
University told Xinhua on Sept. 19 that all of Chen's
activities were in defiance of the "One China"
principle, as well as a provocation to the principles of
international justice and the fight against terrorism.
The underlying intention of
Chen's "anti-terrorism" statements is precisely to
go in for Taiwan Independence, which is closely connected to
his former "one country on each side" remarks,
together with "public vote", and all of the above
are concrete steps toward Taiwan's independence, said the
Professor Li said
Chen's remarks distorted the international anti-terrorism
struggles and challenged the principle of justice.

of non-committment in abandoning the use of force is aimed
at the small number of pro-Taiwan independence forces, and
the real purpose is to defend national sovereignty and
territorial integrity. This policy is China's
internationally-recognized legitimate right in accordance
with theCharter of the United Nations.
The pro-Taiwan Independence

have been involved in a large number of violent activities,
including bombing and terrorism raids, all of which are
contrary to the wishes of the Chinese people.
Chen Shui-bian has also
attempted to mislead international public opinion and stir
up trouble to smear the image of the Chinese mainland, and
even daydreamed that anti-Chinese forces mayone day help
them to achieve "Taiwan Independence".
Professor Li said that, having
suffered from separatist forces and terrorism attacks, the
Chinese mainland is resolved to combat terrorism, and is
also a key member of the international anti-terrorism
Chen Shui-bian will
find that his activities will prove to be afarce in the
world, said Li, adding that Taiwan authorities shouldreturn
to the "One China" principle instead of acting
willfully soas to avoid leading the Taiwan's future into an
