BEIJING, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- Hu Jintao and Xi Jinping on Thursday called for enhanced cooperation between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Kuomintang (KMT) in a bid to continue to promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

They made the remarks in separate replies to messages sent by KMT Chairman Ma Ying-jeou.

In the message to Hu on Thursday, Ma hailed Hu's important contributions to improving relations across the Taiwan Strait.
