TAIPEI, Taiwan — A Kuomintang (KMT) official has told the China Post that party Chairwoman
Hung Hsiu-chu will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing next month.
In addition, KMT Culture and Communications Committee Chairman (CCC) Deputy Chairman Hu Wen-chi said “it was certain” that a “Hung-Xi” meeting would take place in the Chinese capital.
The pair will meet prior to the “Peace and Development Forum” between the KMT and China’s ruling Communist Party (CCP) from Nov. 2-3 in Beijing, according to Hu.
Reports have suggested the meeting will be held on Nov. 1.
Summits between the KMT and the CCP have been held on an irregular basis since 2006 and were previously hosted under the name “The Cross-Strait Economic, Trade and Culture Forum.”
However, others from Taiwan’s main opposition party were more guarded about the prospects of the two party heads meeting. [FULL STORY]
