The Third United Front CCP-KMT-I
The reconciliation across the Taiwan Strait is continuing. In May, Hu Jintao, the Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party had historic meeting with the Wu Poh-hsiung, Chairman of the Chinese Nationalist Party, Taiwan’s ruling party. Even though Wu had met Hu many times prior this meeting, this meeting is significant. The Hu-Wu meeting was the first encounter between the heads of the two ruling parties in over half a century. This historical event shows hope for the Third United Front CCP-KMT (i.e., two previous United Front CCP-KMT were in 1924 and in 1936) to come.
