BEIJING, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- A mainland spokesperson on Thursday expressed support for cross-Strait cultural exchanges and welcomed entertainers from Taiwan to develop their career on the mainland.

Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the statement in response to the remarks of Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen related to an actress from the island who had worked on the mainland.

By obstructing career development of Taiwan entertainers on the mainland, some political forces and media in Taiwan have attempted to undermine cultural exchanges across the Strait, trigger confrontation between people on both sides and worsen cross-Strait relations, Zhu said.

"I hope people of Taiwan can see through such attempts that aim to alienate them from people on the mainland," Zhu said.
