Taiwan's New Party has made positive contributions to promoting the peaceful development of relations across the Taiwan Straits and advancing peaceful reunification of the motherland, said Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council on Sunday.
He made the remarks in response to a media inquiry regarding the New Party's celebrations of its 29th founding anniversary.
Since its founding, the New Party has taken a clear stance on promoting peaceful reunification across the Taiwan Straits, has resolutely upheld one-China principle, and has firmly opposed "Taiwan independence," Ma said.
"We believe the New Party will surely play an important role in cross-strait relations in the days to come. On the basis of adhering to the one-China principle, we will continue to work with visionary people on the island, including the New Party, and work together to achieve national reunification and share the glory of national rejuvenation," he added.
