Xi Jinping said the two sides should adhere to a path of peaceful development under the 1992 Consensus, and oppose "Taiwan independence". He said the Chinese mainland will share development opportunities with Taiwan and improve people-to-people engagement. And he said the CPC and the KMT should seek solutions to lingering political differences.

Chu expressed the hope that both sides can work together, on the basis of the 1992 Consensus, to achieve regional peace, environmental protection and economic integration, so that progress in cross-Strait relations will benefit more ordinary people.
