Jason Dean: Taiwan’s Caution Restores Hopes Of China D√©tente

From the Wall Street Journal:

In the wake of the past weekend’s mass protest in Taiwan against China’s new “antisecession law,” attention is increasingly focused on whether the two rivals can steer relations back toward the spirit of compromise they briefly exhibited early this year.

While a number of issues could fuel further tension between Taipei and Beijing in coming weeks, some analysts see cause for optimism over the prospects for renewed détente because of the cautious response by Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian.
