BEIJING, Oct. 16 -- Separatist forces and their acts seeking "Taiwan independence" were the biggest threat to cross-Strait peace, a Chinese mainland spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Ma Xiaoguang, the spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks at a press conference in Beijing when responding to a question about a defense plan drawn by relevant department of the island, which was targeted at the mainland.

Ma warned that "armed confrontation is a dead-end."

If the Taiwan side upholds the 1992 Consensus and opposes "Taiwan independence," cross-Strait relations will improve and develop, and the interests of Taiwan compatriots will be safeguarded and enhanced, Ma stressed.

"Otherwise, relations will be damaged and the situation in the Taiwan Strait will see turbulence," Ma said. "The interests and welfare of Taiwan compatriots will be harmed."
