China, Taiwan Hold Historic Meeting

From AFP:

Chinese President met here with a senior Taiwan envoy in the highest-level meeting to take place overseas between the rivals since their split in 1949.

Taiwan’s former premier , who is honorary chairman of the island’s ruling Kuomintang party, met with Hu for about 40 minutes at a hotel in Lima, Peru, where leaders are meeting for an Asia-Pacific summit.

Officials in Taiwan’s summit delegation called it the highest-level meeting in an international setting since 1949, when the Kuomintang fled to Taiwan after losing China’s civil war to the communists.

“It is very significant for old friends to meet far away from Asia,” Lien, who has met Hu twice in China this year, told reporters after the meeting.
