BEIJING - The Chinese mainland's Taiwan affairs chief Wednesday called on people across the Taiwan Straits to work together for the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and peaceful reunification of the motherland.
Liu Jieyi, director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks while meeting with a Taiwanese delegation led by Hualien county chief Fu Kun-Chi in Beijing.
Efforts should be made to adhere to the 1992 Consensus, which embodies the one-China principle, and resolutely oppose separatist activities advocating Taiwan independence, Liu noted.
Liu also pledged more measures to boost cross-Straits economic and cultural cooperation and improve the wellbeing of people on both sides.
Fu expressed his gratitude for the help the mainland provided after a devastating earthquake that hit Hualien in early February. He said the county would continue to uphold the 1992 Consensus and expand cooperation with the mainland.
