BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese mainland's policy toward Taiwan remains unchanged in the wake of the island's recent elections, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

"The elections will not change the fact that Taiwan is part of China," said Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, at a regular news briefing.

Ma made the remarks in response to questions about the impact of the Democratic Progressive Party's continued administration and Tsai Ing-wen's re-election on cross-Strait relations and the mainland's Taiwan policy.

"We will continue to uphold the basic principles of 'peaceful reunification' and 'one country, two systems,' and adhere to the one-China principle," said Ma.

The mainland will also continue to unite Taiwan compatriots to promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and advance the process toward the peaceful reunification of the motherland, said Ma.
