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

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