Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the comment in response to the remarks of Taiwan's mainland affairs council regarding cross-Strait relations.

Zhu reiterated that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory. This historical fact and legal basis cannot be changed by anyone or any force, she added.

Zhu said the future of Taiwan lies in national reunification, and the wellbeing of Taiwan compatriots hinges on national rejuvenation.

The mainland will continue to unite Taiwan compatriots to promote the peaceful and integrated development of relations across the Taiwan Strait and advance the process toward the reunification of the motherland, said Zhu.
