The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) sent a message Sunday congratulating the central committee of Kuomintang (KMT) and its chairman Lien Chan on convening its 16th representatives' congress.
The CPC Central Committee said in the message that it hopes the KMT will keep its position of abiding by the One-China principle, opposing the "Taiwan Independence", and seeking for the country's reunification.
The CPC Central Committee also hopes that KMT will make contributions to promoting relations across the Taiwan Strait and the process of peaceful reunification.
Totally 2,001 people, including 1,467 representatives, attended the KMT congress held on Sunday in Taipei. Former KMT chairman Lee Teng-hui was not invited to attend the congress.
