BEIJING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao Tuesday urged the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Kuomintang (KMT) to further strengthen their cooperation to make common expectations on cross-Strait relations a reality.

Speaking with visiting Honorary KMT Chairman Lien Chan at the Great Hall of the People, Hu said the understanding and ideas reflected in the "common aspiration and prospects for cross-Strait peace and development," issued in 2005 by leaders of both parties, have been proven right.

Most of the ideas detailed in the "common aspiration and prospects" have been realized, benefiting compatriots of both the mainland and Taiwan, Hu said.

The moves have resulted in increased economical cooperation and personnel exchanges since 2008.

"The CPC and the KMT should step up their cooperation to further carry out the 'common aspiration and prospects,'" he said.

Terming concerted efforts and solidarity of both mainland and Taiwanese compatriots as the "inexhaustible driving force" for mainland-Taiwan relations' peaceful development, Hu expressed hope that both sides would continue to broaden their cooperation and exchanges.

"To meet the development needs of the situation, both sides of the Taiwan Strait should take active measures to provide better institutional guarantees for cross-Strait exchanges and cooperation," he stressed.
