Taiwan-based groups called on the Kuomintang party to further cooperation and reconciliation with the mainland on Sunday.

The call was made by Chi Hsing, chairwoman of the Alliance for the Reunification of China, at a dinner party attended by about 300 representatives from various social groups in Taiwan.

She expressed hope that the Kuomintang could take the opportunity of the ever more frequent trade exchanges with the mainland and the overall amity between the two sides to seek further cooperation and reconciliation.

She also expressed hope that the two sides could end the hostility so that people from both sides across the Taiwan Strait could share the glory of the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Yok Mu-ming, chairman of the New Party, also delivered a speech at the gathering.

The dinner party was held to celebrate three anniversaries which all fall in October, including National Day of the People's Republic of China, the 1911 Revolution led by Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and the end of the Japanese rule over Taiwan on Oct. 25, 1945.
