China warns Taiwan opposition as it names presidential candidate

BEIJING/TAIPEI (Reuters) - China warned Taiwan's main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Wednesday to heed the lessons of the last time it was in power and not push for independence, as the party announced its candidate for next year's presidential election.
