The Kuomintang (KMT) honorary chairman Wu Poh-hsiung Monday said the peaceful cross-Straits development was the "right path", while meeting here with Liang Baohua, secretary of Jiangsu Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

"Practice is sole criterion for testing truth. The development of cross-Straits ties over the past year has made me strongly feel that it is the right path to seek peaceful development," Wu said.

Wu made the remarks in a meeting with Liang, who heads a delegation arriving in Taiwan on Monday afternoon for a six-day tour of exchange and cooperation.

Invited by the Kuomintang (KMT) Central Committee, Liang was the first chief of a CPC provincial committee to visit Taiwan.

Wu mentioned the mutual care between Taiwan and the Chinese mainland after the Sichuan earthquake last year and the typhoon Morakot in Taiwan this year.

Liang said the visit itself was a reflection of peaceful cross-Straits development.

"Jiangsu is among the regions on the mainland that have closest exchanges and cooperation with Taiwan. Our visit is to implement the common prospects for peaceful cross-Straits development with pragmatic measures," Liang said.

The CPC and KMT reached an agreement on the common prospects for peaceful cross-Straits development in 2005.
