The Xi-Ma Meeting

On November 7, 2015, Xi Jinping and Ma Ying-jeou, leaders from both sides of the Taiwan Straits, met in Singapore to exchange views on furthering the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations. This was a historic meeting, the first since 1949, of the leaders from both sides of the Taiwan Straits. Both sides acknowledged the progress that has been made in cross-Straits relations and peaceful development since 2008. They reaffirmed their commitment to the "1992 Consensus" and a number of other key commitments: to consolidating common political ground, maintaining peace and stability in the development of cross-Straits relations, increasing communication and dialogue, and expanding exchanges and cooperation to the benefit of people in both Chinese mainland and Taiwan. This meeting opened a new chapter in the history of cross-Straits relations.
