The Chinese mainland will continue its "correct policies" to further consolidate peaceful cross-Straits ties, top political adviser Yu Zhengsheng said on Sunday.

Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks in a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the fifth Straits Forum in Xiamen, Fujian province. The forum is scheduled to continue through Friday.

"The new leadership will continue to follow the correct policies and dedicate itself to consolidating the political, economic, cultural and social foundation for the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations," Yu said.

Yu said fruitful exchanges and cooperation have opened a new era of peaceful development that has brought substantial benefits to people on both sides of the Straits, and that the key to further development lies in the two sides adhering to the 1992 consensus and carrying out more communication, boosting understanding and beefing up cooperation to achieve mutual benefits.

The Straits Forum, initiated in 2009, has become an important platform for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, according to the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.
