BEIJING, July 4 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor on Monday urged the media across the Taiwan Strait to hold more exchanges and cooperation.
Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks when meeting with a delegation from Taiwan led by Tsai Eng-Meng, chairman of Want Want China Times Group.
Yu called for adhering to 1992 Consensus as the political foundation for peaceful development of cross-Strait ties.
1992 Consensus holds the One-China principle and stipulates that the mainland and Taiwan belong to one and the same China and cross-Strait ties are not ties between nations.
The so-called "Taiwan Independence" has no future, and all pro-independence activities will be opposed by the Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots, said Yu.
Yu said exchanges between the press of the two sides have played an important role in strengthening mutual understanding. He hoped Want Want China Times Group to strengthen cooperation and exchanges with the mainland media, in a bid to make positive public opinion environment for safeguarding peaceful development of cross-Strait ties.
