BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- During a meeting with a delegation from Taiwan on Monday, China's top political advisor Wang Huning stressed that the mainland will always respect, care for and work to bring benefits to Taiwan compatriots.
Wang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, met with the delegation led by Liu Chao-shiuan, co-president of the Cross-Strait CEO Summit, in Beijing.
The mainland will fully implement the guiding principles of the 20th CPC National Congress and the CPC's overall policy for the resolution of the Taiwan question in the new era, and work to keep cross-Strait relations on the right track, Wang said.
Efforts will be made to ensure that Taiwan compatriots and their businesses are willing to invest on the mainland, integrate into the development of the mainland and prosper on the mainland, and that they can benefit from the mainland's development and share the glory of national rejuvenation, he said.
Wang stressed that the mainland is committed to safeguarding peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, but this cannot be realized with the existence of "Taiwan independence."
He called for joint efforts across the Strait to work against external interference and the separatist activities of "Taiwan independence" forces, and to strive for the great cause of national reunification and the cause of national rejuvenation.
Liu said he hopes that the Cross-Strait CEO Summit, which was established in parallel in Beijing and Taipei for better economic and trade exchanges between the mainland and Taiwan, will play a greater role in deepening cross-Strait industrial cooperation and integrated development, to bring benefits to people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and contribute to national rejuvenation. ■
