China reiterates legality of 1992 Consensus

China's Taiwan Affairs Office says the 1992 Consensus -- which reflects the "One-China principle" -- is in line with the development of cross-Strait relations in both a legal and a practical sense.

"It is not an additional premise, but reached by the two sides through communication and consultation," said Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson, Chinese State Council's Taiwan Affairs Office.

"We will continue to adhere to the political foundation of the 1992 Consensus, firmly oppose 'Taiwan independence' and maintain the one-China principle, to expand communication between compatriots across the Strait, enhance exchange and cooperation in various fields and build a cross-Strait community of common destiny."

He added the ruling Democratic Progressive Party has long pursued a secessionist stand, which has had a severe impact on the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and achievements since 2008. And he stressed that if they continued to pursue "Taiwan independence", be it radical or otherwise, they would be doomed to failure.
