Taiwan Ruling Party Chief in China for Landmark Meeting
The head of Taiwan’s ruling party arrived in China on Monday for the highest-level contact with the communist mainland’s leadership in 60 years.
Kuomintang chairman Wu Poh-hsiung landed in the eastern city of Nanjing, with his arrival broadcast on national television in a rare break from China’s blanket media coverage of the aftermath of its deadly earthquake.
His arrival at the head of a 16-member KMT delegation invited by China is a clear sign of easing tensions since his China-friendly party defeated Taiwan’s pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party in a March presidential poll.
