And in other news…

From BBC news: Rivals hold historic China talks.

From the Guardian: Taiwanese opposition leader in Beijing talks.

From Xinhua: CPC, KMT leaders shake hands in historic meeting.

I’m mildly amused by how UK news outlets refer to Lien Chan as the opposition leader, and how Xinhua refers to him as Chairman of the Kuomintang(国民堂) first and mentions that they are an opposition party later. Xinhua also fails to mention how the Kuomintang changed their tune about the communist party only after losing power. Read into that what you will.
