BEIJING -- China is increasing global efforts to oppose Taiwanese independence, a senior ruling Chinese Communist Party official said on Saturday, reiterating his country's claim to the self-governing democratic island.

"We are unwavering in our upholding of the 'One China' principle, and we insist on the political foundation of the '1992 Consensus' being sustained, and we are firmly opposed to Taiwan independence," Zhang Yijiong, executive vice minister of the party's United Front Work Department, told reporters in discussing Beijing's policy toward Taiwan.
