16:39, November 17, 2011

CHONGQING, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- A top Chinese mainland official has stressed that the 1992 Consensus is the "essential premise" for cross-Strait negotiations, as well as the foundation for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

Wang, director of both the Taiwan Work Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remark on Thursday in his speech at an opening ceremony for Chongqing-Taiwan Week, which is being held in southwest China's Chongqing municipality.

"The 1992 Consensus is indisputable. Cross-Strait relations cannot regress and peace on the Taiwan Strait cannot be lost. The benefits of compatriots from both sides cannot be destroyed," Wang said.

Stating that cross-Strait relations are now in a crucial transitional stage, Wang stressed that safeguarding the current cross-Strait political groundwork is a common responsibility, adding that maintaining the positive trend of exchanges and cooperation is essential for the benefit of both sides.

Wang called upon people on both sides to continue to make concrete efforts to contribute to the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.
