Based on the one-China principle, the 1992 Consensus is the political foundation of cross-Strait relations, and Zhu called on the KMT to uphold the 1992 Consensus and oppose "Taiwan independence."

"Adhering to the 1992 Consensus that embodies the one-China principle is the unshakable foundation for the peaceful and stable development of relations between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits," Zhu underscored. 

The spokeswoman noted that current cross-Straits relations are complicated and challenging, calling for more efforts to jointly push forward the peaceful development of the ties and advance the process toward the peaceful reunification of China.
