Updated: 2005-04-30 22:35

"The meeting is successful to both sides. It is a win-win communication, which reflects a breakthrough in the mainland policy towards Taiwan," said Suen, who has been a member of the KMT for about 62 years.

The Taiwan-based "Central Daily News" said in its editorial that it was obvious both parties were pursuing a peaceful development of cross-Straits relations. Based on the principles set forth in the meeting, the end of cross-Straits hostility, establishment of a mechanism of military mutual trust and a peace accord between the two sides across the Taiwan Straits could be realized smoothly.

An editorial of the Taiwan-based "China Times" says the Friday meeting has set the "peaceful tone" for the development of cross- Straits relations.

Hu Lingwei, a researcher with the Shanghai-based East Asia Studies Institute, said the meeting provided an opportunity for both parties to exchange views and convey to each other the expectations of people on both sides.

"It facilitates communications between people on both sides of the Straits," said Hu.
