Taipei, June 10 (CNA) Over 60 percent of the respondents to a recent poll in Taiwan think the government should come up with countermeasures against China's suppression of Taiwan in the international arena, according to the results of a survey released Sunday by the Taiwan Cross-Strait Policy Association.

During a press conference, the association released the results of the survey conducted June 8-9, which found that 63.6 percent of its 1,070 respondents said they support the government crafting countermeasures in the face of China's suppression, with 20.7 percent opposed.

Meanwhile, 52.2 percent of the respondents said the government should not accept the "1992 consensus" on Beijing's one-China principle, while 34.8 percent said it should.

In the survey, 52 percent of those polled said the Chinese government has been destroying the status quo in the Taiwan Strait since President Tsai Ing-wen  took office in May 2016, while 32.8 percent said they believe it is the Taiwanese government that has been destroying the status quo.

It also found that 60.9 percent expressed approval for the government strictly scrutinizing applications of Chinese officials seeking to visit Taiwan, while 31.2 percent did not approve.

Meanwhile, 52.4 percent of the respondents said they disapprove of opposition Kuomintang (KMT) Vice Chairman Hau Lung-bin's statement at the opening ceremony of the 10th annual Straits Forum in Xiamen, China last week that relations between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait should move from being "like one family" to "becoming an actual family," while 37.3 percent expressed approval for his statement.

The poll also shows that 61.3 percent said they disagree with KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih's  recent comment that the eventual goal of the two sides of the strait is national unification as stated in the Constitution of the Republic of China, while 29.4 percent said they agree.

It also reveals that 51.2 percent of the respondents believe the recent visits to China by Hau and 10 other KMT members amid China's constant efforts to suppress Taiwan's international space were inappropriate, while 36.5 percent said the opposite is true.

The poll also shows that 58.8 percent of the respondents disagree with the KMT's comment that the government should be blamed for the loss of several of Taiwan's official diplomatic allies, while 33.6 percent had the opposite opinion.

According to the poll, 54.2 percent of the polled said Taiwan should be leaning toward the United States to protect its sovereignty, while 24.6 percent said Taiwan should tilt toward China.

To the question of which party will better protect Taiwan's sovereignty and dignity, 42.9 percent replied the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and 33.2 percent said the KMT.
