Beijing, March 4 (Xinhua) Chinese President Hu Jintao said here Tuesday the “secessionist activities” in Taiwan have become the greatest menace to China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, but such activities are doomed to fail. “The ‘Taiwan independence’ activities have run counter to the Chinese nation’s strong will to safeguard national unity. Such activities will get nowhere and are doomed to fail,” Hu told the political advisors attending the first annual full session of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (NCCPPCC) here.

Hu, also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and chairman of the Central Military Commission, observed that the “Taiwan independence” activities have become “the biggest menace to national sovereignty and territorial integrity, the biggest obstacle to the development of cross-Strait relations, and the biggest threat to peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits.”

He said the mainland would make efforts to build an atmosphere conducive to safeguarding peace in the Straits and promoting peaceful reunification of the “motherland”.

Hu said, “we adhere to the one-China principle as the foundation, while seeking benefits for compatriots on both sides of the Straits as the objective, and the deepening of mutually-beneficial, win-win exchange and cooperation as the approach.”

“We are ready to have exchange, dialogue, consultation and negotiation with any political parties in Taiwan, as long as they recognize that both sides of the Taiwan Straits belong to one China,” Hu stated.
