0

BEIJING: China’s President Xi Jinping met longtime Taiwanese politician James Soong in Beijing on Wednesday, state media said, the latest step in incrementally improving ties in recent years. China’s official news agency Xinhua described Xi as the general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, and Soong as chairman of Taiwan’s People First Party, suggesting that the two met in their party rather than official capacities. They met at the Great Hall of the People in the heart of the capital. Xi urged closer contacts and warned against the island breaking away, Xinhua reported.
