Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration should "make a profound self-criticism and get back to the right path of peaceful development of cross-Strait relations," a Chinese mainland spokesperson said Wednesday.
"The DPP should face the strong aspiration of Taiwan residents for sharing the benefits of the peaceful development across the Taiwan Strait, and improving the island's economy and people's wellbeing," said Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, at a press conference.
"The DPP should get back to the political foundation of the 1992 Consensus and to the right path of the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.
"Since it took power, the DPP administration has unilaterally undermined the political foundation of the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, supported and connived at attempts for 'Taiwanese independence' in various forms, obstructed and restricted people-to-people exchanges across the Strait.
"It has also sought foreign intervention in cross-Strait affairs, repeatedly made remarks fraught with the 'two Chinas' separatist fallacy and confrontational thinking.
"Such acts aggravated hostility between Taiwan and the mainland, brought cross-Strait relations to a grave and complex situation, and seriously harmed the interests of Taiwanese compatriots.
"The way out for the DPP and its administration only lies in abandoning separatist attempts at 'Taiwanese independence' and accepting the 1992 Consensus."
