Chinese President Xi Jingping called on Taiwan Sunday to work with China on developing "long-term and healthy" cross-Taiwan Strait relations. Meeting Taiwanese former Vice President Vincent Siew on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum annual summit being held in the Chinese capital, Xi said some achievements have been made over the past year in the development of cross-strait ties, but he added that there are also some "new problems."
He said both sides should strengthen their mutual trust and confidence, respect each other and engage in "benevolent interaction" to keep bilateral ties developing in a "long-term and healthy."
