President hopes cross-strait leaders' meeting will become regular
Taipei, Nov. 5 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) said Thursday that his upcoming "historic landmark" talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) will mark the first step toward making such meetings a regular occurrence between the leaders of the two sides and will help further improve cross-Taiwan Strait relations.
The fact that the two leaders will address each other as "Mister" rather than by their official titles indicates "equality and dignity," Ma told a press conference, adding that it reflects "flexibility and pragmatism" in the conduct of bilateral ties.
