Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks when commenting on the US proposal to have Taiwan participate in the 2022 Rim of the Pacific military exercises, which is included in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022 passed by the US House of Representatives recently.

The Taiwan question is entirely China's internal affair, and the US government and its relevant bodies have no right to interfere in it, emphasized Zhu.
