BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese mainland's Taiwan affairs chief Wednesday called on people across the Taiwan Strait to work together for the peaceful development of cross-Strait 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-Strait 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.
