The United States is using Taiwan as a pawn to contain the Chinese mainland and could abandon the island at any time, a mainland spokeswoman said Wednesday after media reported that the U.S. is planning to evacuate Americans from Taiwan.

According to reports, driven by concerns over escalation of cross-Strait tensions, the U.S. government is drafting plans to evacuate Americans from Taiwan. Considering that Taiwan is quite sensitive to this matter, the U.S. hasn't publicized the plans, one source said.

Zhu Fenglian, spokeswoman for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said the Democratic Progressive Party authorities in Taiwan keep boasting about its so-called relations with the U.S., but the U.S. has long been planning to abandon Taiwan at any time.

For some time, some U.S. politicians have been saying they hope for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, but in reality they are trying to turn the island into a "ammunition depot" by making continuous weapons sales to Taiwan authorities, she said.

Mentioning the U.S. approach in countries including Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, Zhu said that the U.S. always prioritizes its own interests and is known to stir up trouble, create divisions and conflicts, and misuse its military forces around the world.

"Now the U.S. wants to replicate the same approach in Taiwan," she said. "Once war breaks out in the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan will become a battleground, and the people will become 'cannon fodder' while Americans in Taiwan will escape from it."
