BEIJING — The administration of Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) creates cross-Straits conflict, destroys peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits and violates the interests of the people in Taiwan, a Chinese mainland spokesperson said at a press conference Wednesday.

Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesman for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks in response to the island's leader Tsai Ing-wen's recent comments involving the denial of the 1992 Consensus.

The DPP administration, for its own interests, goes against the common aspirations for peace and development of compatriots on both sides of the Straits and undermines the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations in all respects, which can only harm the vital interests of Taiwan compatriots and ruin the future of the island, said Ma.

Ma stated there is only one China in the world. Taiwan and the Chinese mainland belong to one China. China's sovereignty and territorial integrity have never been and cannot be divided. "That is the status quo of cross-Straits relations and is universally acknowledged by the international community."
