A historic involving China and Taiwan will take place , Saturday, November the 7th. Chinese president Xi Jinping and Taiwanese president Ma Ying-Jeou will meet for in Singapore. It is the first at presidential level to take place between China and Taiwan since the of the Chinese war in 1949. Taiwan is just 180 km from China but their have remained cautious and, at times, frosty for decades. China considers Taiwan to be part of its and therefore does not regard it as a separate nation. Only 22 foreign governments recognise Taiwan as an independent country. The status of Taiwan is one of the more problems in international politics to find a to.

The between the two leaders is a major stepping to repair decades-old divisions. It could pave the way for meetings in the future. Special etiquette is already in for the milestone encounter. The two parties have decided not to use the "president" to address each other. Instead, they will use the "mister". Further, the two leaders will not sign any . Neither will they issue any statements or hold a joint press conference. A Chinese official said the meeting is to, "exchange on promoting the peaceful development of [our] relations". A spokesman for Mr Ma said the talks, "aim to solidify relations between the two and keep the status quo".
