Den-yih (吳敦義) on Tuesday said it is likely that he could meet Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) later this year.

Asked if he would visit China after he becomes KMT chair on Aug. 20, Wu said the most likely time for such a trip, and a meeting with Xi, would be at the KMT-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) forum.

He said that he would follow the established mechanisms for such meetings.
Since there is a precedent for the party leaders to meet at the forum, such a meeting could take place “naturally,” he said.

This year’s KMT-CCP forum is to be held soon, Wu said.

KMT Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) met with Xi during last year’s forum in early November.    [FULL  STORY]
