Mainland official stresses common political foundation of upholding 1992 Consensus

NANNING, Sept. 14 -- The Chinese mainland is willing to work with the Taiwan-based Kuomintang (KMT) party to consolidate the common political foundation of adhering to 1992 Consensus and opposing "Taiwan independence," the mainland's Taiwan affairs chief said Thursday.

Zhang Zhijun, head of both the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks while meeting with Hau Lung-bin, vice chairman of the KMT in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

"We are willing to strengthen exchanges with the KMT and jointly advance relations between the two parties and cross-Strait relations," Zhang said.

Hau is in Nanning to attend a Guangxi-Taiwan forum on trade and cultural cooperation.
