TAIPEI, Taiwan — Kuomintang Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu embarked Sunday on a
closely watched trip to mainland China to meet Chinese leader Xi Jinping and attend the annual KMT-Chinese Communist Party forum.
The high-profile meeting between Hung and Xi is slated to take place in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People on Tuesday, a day before the opening of the Cross-Strait Peace Development Forum, formerly called the Cross-Strait Trade, Economy and Culture Forum.
In the weeks leading up to the event, the KMT appeared riven by conflict as party leaders sought to smooth differences in cross-strait policies, namely in interpretations of the so-called “1992 Consensus.”
Party heavyweights and KMT lawmakers have urged Hung to mention either “one China, different interpretations” or the “Republic of China” during her meeting with Xi or at any other “suitable circumstance.” [FULL STORY]
