BEIJING--Taiwan Affairs Office spokesman Yang Yi said Wednesday he hoped the relationship between Taiwan and China can continue under the “1992 Consensus” and reiterated China's opposition to Taiwan independence.
Yang made the remarks following President Ma Ying-jeou's Double Tenth National Day address, in which Ma said he will continue efforts to expand interactions with China on the basis of the consensus.
The “1992 consensus” refers to what the Kuomintang describes as a tacit cross-strait understanding that there is only “one China,” with each side free to interpret the meaning of the phrase.
