Xinhua: Hu, Chen meeting should be on “own soil”

From Xinhua:

A Chinese central government spokesman said here on Wednesday that any possible meeting between President Hu Jintao and Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian should be held on “our own soil.”

“The Taiwan issue is an internal issue of the Chinese people, so any such meeting should only occur on our own soil,” said Li Weiyi, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, at a routine press conference when asked to comment on Chen’s remarks that he would like to meet with Hu in the United States.
