BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Wednesday condemned the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority in Taiwan for attempting to develop "official ties" with the United States under the pretext of commercial purposes, saying the move will only damage the interests of Taiwan compatriots.

Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the comments in response to the DPP's plan to hold an "economic and commercial dialogue" with the United States.

Ma called it another move to put the Taiwan market at the mercy of the United States, following the DPP opening the Taiwan market to problematic U.S. agricultural and livestock products for political purposes.

The DPP authority's attempt to develop official ties with the United States under the pretext of economic and commercial purposes will harm the economic interests and well-being of Taiwan compatriots, Ma said.
