BEIJING -- There was a high-profile meeting in Beijing on May 4 between Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and China's president, and Eric Chu, chairman of Taiwan's ruling Chinese Nationalist Party, also known as the Kuomintang.

     The powwow marked the latest in a series of exchanges that the two political parties have held since 2005, when they ended many years of confrontation dating back to the civil war between Nationalists and Communists.
