The US has been attempting to launch a new round of attack on China over the Taiwan question with its allies during the UN General Assembly, and Chinese observers said with each move the US and its allies took to embolden the Taiwan secessionist forces at international occasions, the Chinese mainland will make secessionist forces bear more risks and eventually wear out the external interference. 

Observers said the US is walking toward a dead end in hyping the Taiwan question as most of its diplomatic statements and warships' transit of the Taiwan Straits with its allies only served as political shows, and US' related hype and possible more moves during UN General Assembly will have little positive response as the one-China principle is an international consensus. 

After the US Navy destroyer USS Higgins and Royal Canadian Navy frigate HMCS Vancouver on Tuesday made a transit through the Taiwan Straits and publicly highlighted the event, the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Eastern Theater Command on Wednesday stated that its troops have kept US and Canadian warships under close monitoring when they transited the Taiwan Straits, and the troops of the PLA Eastern Theater Command are always on high alert, will resolutely counter any threats and provocations, and will firmly safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson of the PLA Eastern Theater Command, said in a statement released on Wednesday.
