"It is the common political proposition and the goal of our two parties to firmly oppose 'Taiwan independence' and promote peaceful reunification of the country," said Hu Jintao, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.

He made the remarks at a meeting with the opposition New Party delegation headed by chairman Yok Mu-ming at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing yesterday afternoon.

Yok is now the third leader from Taiwanese opposition parties to meet Hu, also president, since April following Kuomintang (KMT) Chairman Lien Chan and People First Party Chairman James Soong.

Hu pledged that the CPC would continue to work with the New Party to resolutely oppose "Taiwan independence" forces and their activities, safeguard cross-Straits peace and stability and improve bilateral relations.
