    "No matter what kind of changes take place in the cross-Strait relations, our stance of adhering to the one-China principle and opposing 'Taiwan independence' secessionist activities will never change, and cannot be changed," Hu told U.S. President George W. Bush in Beijing.

    Under new circumstances, the Chinese government will continue to push for the peaceful development of the relations across the Taiwan Straits, said the Chinese president, adding that China hopes to see Washington properly handle the Taiwan issue and support such peaceful development.
