BEIJING -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on Saturday congratulated Hung Hsiu-chu for being elected the chairperson of Kuomintang (KMT).

Xi said in his message to Hung that he hoped the two parties shall keep the overall national interest and the well-being of the compatriots in mind, and continue to adhere to the 1992 Consensus and oppose "Taiwan independence."

The CPC and KMT should consolidate the foundation of mutual trust, strengthen communication and interaction, jointly safeguard the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits and, with one heart, strive to achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, Xi said.

In her reply to Xi's message, Hung expressed gratitude for Xi's congratulation.

The compatriots on both sides of the Straits are all parts of the Chinese nation, Hung said.
