Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, has said that any "Taiwan independence" activities will be firmly opposed.

Any attempts by "Taiwan independence" secessionists to use the UN to challenge the one-China policy, which is supported by the international community, will not succeed, said Ma on Wednesday.

Ma made the remarks when responding to some political forces in Taiwan inciting the island's application for UN membership.

Ma reiterated that the UN is an international organization composed of sovereign states and adheres to the one-China policy. Taiwan is part of China.

Ma warned "Taiwan independence" secessionists to draw the lessons from former Taiwan leaders Lee Teng-hui and Chen Shui-bian, who manipulated attempt for Taiwan's UN membership, but failed.
