"The anti-democratic forces with their ideological wrappings inside Taiwan and the authoritarian Chinese have quickly become good friends. With the support of the Chinese, their anti-democratic actions have become unrestrained and unhampered," Lee said.

"The interplay of these internal and external factors has led to complexity and confusion in Taiwan's national identity," the former president said, adding that this was the "most significant threat to Taiwan's democracy."

He accused the pan-blue camp of "bringing Qing soldiers through the gate" in "cooperating with the communists to control Taiwan."

Lee will return to Taiwan on Oct. 24.
