Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks in response to a recent update to the "Taiwan fact sheet" displayed on the website of the US Department of State, which removed wording on not supporting "Taiwan independence" and acknowledging China's position that Taiwan is part of China.

Zhu said some people in the Taiwan region are playing up this issue, in an attempt to garner US support for independence. "Such a move will not change the fact that Taiwan is a part of China."
