Hu and Ma exchange Direct Messages

Chinese state chairman and CCP general secretary Hu Jintao (胡锦涛) sent a congratulatory telegram to Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) after Ma’s election as chairman of the ruling party KMT on Sunday. Ma responded that they had “put aside disputes”, a KMT statement said.

The Guofu and His successor?

BBC correspondent Cindy Sui wrote on Sunday that in his capacity as the KMT’s chairman, Ma Ying-jeou would be able to meet Hu Jintao personally. Beijing claims Taiwan as Chinese territory and doesn’t recognize Mr Ma’s presidency. Ma is in no hurry to visit China, but it is believed that his KMT chairmanship will strengthen his influence in Taiwan’s dealings with China.
