BEIJING, March 22 (Xinhua) -- Hu Jintao, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on Thursday reiterated the opposition to "Taiwan independence" and the recognition of the "1992 consensus."

Hu made the remarks during his meeting with a delegation led by Wu Po-hsiung, honorary chairman of the Kuomintang (KMT) party, in the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing.

Hu said cross-Strait development is "the common will of both sides" in line with the overall interests of the Chinese people and the trends of progress and development.

The "1992 consensus" is an agreement reached between the mainland and Taiwan in 1992, upholding the one-China principle.

Both sides should develop "along the correct path" to "consolidate achievements, deepen cooperation, push forward cross-Strait development and strive to make new breakthroughs for the revival of the Chinese nation," Hu said.

Hu greeted the delegation and spoke highly of the efforts made by Wu in promoting cross-Strait relations.

Cross-Strait relations have realized "a historical transition" over the last four years and seen a series of achievements, Hu said.

Practices have shown that the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations has been recognized by more and more Taiwanese and received positive responses from the international community, Hu said.
