China's Top Advisory Body Calls for Fight Against Taiwan Independence


China's government-run media say the country's top advisory body ended its annual session Monday after adopting a resolution to strongly oppose Taiwan independence efforts.

The Xinhua news agency reports the resolution noted that Taiwan's leaders have accelerated what it termed "dangerous" steps toward independence. The agency urged all Chinese to resolutely oppose and check independence forces and activities.

The resolution wrapped up the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference that opened March 3 in Beijing.

Xinhua says the purpose of the body is to conduct political consultation and debate issues of state. This year's session was attended by more than two thousand advisors from across the country.

Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian recently raised cross-strait tensions by scrapping guidelines and a group dedicated to Taiwan's eventual unification with mainland China.
