BEIJING - A State Council Taiwan Affairs Office spokesperson on Wednesday urged Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party authority to stop obstructing ferry links between Kinmen and Xiamen.

Calling the ferry services an important, convenient channel for exchanges among people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits, especially Fujian and Taiwan residents, spokesperson Ma Xiaoguang expressed his hope that the DPP authority could heed the call for early resumption of the ferry links and no longer obstruct the services.
