Parties unite to combat Taiwan secession
He stressed that "Taiwan independence" is a road leading to disaster and only by curbing secessionist activities can cross-Straits peace and stability be maintained to ensure a stable environment for economic and social development on both sides.
"Firm opposition to 'Taiwan independence' means real love for Taiwan," Hu said, adding that the fight against secessionist activities benefits the island's social stability and the immediate interests of people in Taiwan.
The CPC leader praised the New Party's support for national reunification and its contribution to improving cross-Straits ties.
Hu added that the New Party is one of Taiwan's important political forces that can not be ignored.
The New Party has always stuck to the one-China principle, opposed Taiwan's secession from China and stood for peaceful reunification of the motherland, he said.
"It's very praiseworthy for you to do so and we very much appreciate your efforts," Hu said.
Yok said his party would stand firm on its support for reunification.
He expressed his hope that people on both sides of the
Straits should unite to strive for a rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
