Zhang, also director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks while attending a cross-Strait press forum.

Zhang said the mainland will adhere to its fundamental policies toward Taiwan and comprehensively promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

Speaking on behalf of the event sponsor, CCTV president Hu Zhanfan advocated the exchange of permanent offices for media organizations and "pragmatic collaborations" on programs, advertisements and academic cooperation.

Hu also proposed joint promotion of Chinese culture and cooperation in new media.
