CPC, KMT to strengthen exchanges based on 1992 Consensus: spokesperson

BEIJING, Dec. 28 -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Kuomintang (KMT) Party will continue to strengthen exchanges and dialogues and promote the peaceful development of mainland-Taiwan ties on the basis of adhering to the 1992 Consensus and opposing "Taiwan independence," a mainland spokesperson said Wednesday.

An Fengshan, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks at a press conference.

The two parties held a dialogue on Friday in Beijing to discuss ways of strengthening cross-Strait ties, which An said has produced positive outcomes.

The two parties agreed at the dialogue to uphold the 1992 Consensus stressing the one-China principle and oppose "Taiwan independence," and to deepen exchanges, including meetings between leaders of the two parties, said An.

The two will also help expand cross-Strait exchanges and cooperation in various sectors and increase benefits for people from the mainland and Taiwan, considering better policies for Taiwan's young people to study, live and work on the mainland, according to An.

The mainland also supports counties, cities and towns that endorse the 1992 Consensus to conduct exchanges and cooperation activities on the mainland, An said.
