BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Wednesday said the mainland will keep an eye on the moves of those elements seeking "Taiwan independence" on the island and punish them in accordance with the law.

Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, warned the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority in Taiwan and "Taiwan independence" separatist forces not to misjudge the situation and act willfully on the path for "Taiwan independence," which leads to nowhere.
