Taiwan Leader Calls For China Trade Pact But No Rush To Meet Hu

From AFP:

Taiwan’s President on Wednesday called for a trade pact with China but said he was not likely to meet his Chinese counterpart soon despite warming ties between the former bitter rivals.

In an interview with the Taipei-based United Evening News, Ma said the two sides had been building mutual trust since he came to power last year.

“However, the icy ties are just beginning to thaw and the construction of a bridge (for dialogue) just starting,” Ma said.

“So it’s better to wait until the ice has completely thawed and the remaining barriers entirely removed,” he replied when asked about the possibility of a summit meeting with President Hu Jintao in the near future.
