No other way for Taiwan than to accept One-China policy: Beijing
China on Wednesday told Taiwan that there was no other way to "end the deadlock" between them than to accept the One-China policy.
Beijing: China on Wednesday told Taiwan that there was no other way to "end the deadlock" between them than to accept the One-China policy.
Taiwan authorities should accept the 1992 Consensus which embodies the One-China principle to break the current cross- Strait communication deadlock, said China's Spokesperson for Taiwan Affairs An Fengshan.
By refusing to endorse the 1992 Consensus, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), headed by Taiwanese President Tsai- Ing-wen has undermined the common political foundation of the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, An said.
"The key to ending the deadlock is for Taiwan to return to the common fundamental political basis. There is no other way," he was quoted as saying by the state-run Xinhua news agency.
"Different paths means divergent development prospects. If the Taiwan administration chooses the old road of conflict and confrontation, it will clash with the will of people across the Strait," An added.
Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen has refused to recognise the 1992 Consensus since taking office in May 2016, which has led to the suspension of cross-Strait communication mechanisms, the report said.
China claims Taiwan which broke away from the mainland in 1949 as a part of the mainland.
The One China policy states that there is only one Chinese government and that the island of Taiwan is a breakaway province that belongs to China.
