Chris Buckley: Sons of Chiang on Mao’s turf

From The International Herald Tribune:

Senior officials on Thursday welcomed a delegation of Taiwanese opposition politicians into the party’s heavily guarded headquarters here for discussions that focused on economic ties between China and Taiwan. Both sides, analysts said, viewed the talks as an occasion to demonstrate that negotiations over Taiwan’s future relationship with the mainland remain a plausible possibility.

The 34 officials from Taiwan’s were received in the Communist Party’s Zhongnanhai Compound by Tang Jiaxuan, China’s former foreign minister and now a senior government adviser. Among other things, senior Chinese Communist Party officials formally invited the Nationalist Party’s chairman, Lien Chan, also to visit China.

People’s Daily also published an article entitled “Twelve results achieved in CPC and KMT dialogue.” The Central News Agency of Taiwan reported: KMT consensus with China will benefit Taiwan, KMT caucus. And The Taipei Times published an editorial: The KMT doesn’t represent Taiwan.
