The Democratic Progressive Party administration should abandon its "Taiwan independence" stance and antagonistic mentality, An Fengshan, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said during a press conference.
"Only by recognizing the common political foundation of the 1992 Consensus can the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations be maintained," An said.
The 1992 Consensus embodies the one-China principle.
The spokesperson made the remarks when asked to comment on an ongoing military drill in Taiwan, which has simulated a mainland attack.
