BEIJING, Jan. 22 (Xinhua) -- A mainland spokesperson on Friday lashed out at the collusion between Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) with former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his ilk, saying they undermined peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.
Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the comment when answering a query about the remarks by Taiwan's mainland affairs council regarding the mainland's sanctions against 28 U.S. individuals, including Pompeo.
Zhu pointed out that the DPP authorities have sought to forge ties with U.S. anti-China politicians in the previous administration and cement the result of their collusion in their own interest, as proved by facts.
They even greenlit U.S. pork imports containing ractopamine, which is harmful to people's health. It triggered indignation among the Taiwan public, Zhu said.
Zhu noted that Pompeo and the others had themselves to blame for the sanctions.
The DPP authorities only showed that they are of the same kind as Pompeo and his ilk by colluding with them, and they will be tried and punished by history, she added.
