China confirms Xi to meet Taiwan president in Singapore

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou in Singapore on Saturday, Chinese state news agency Xinhua said on Wednesday.

Xinhua did not elaborate on the meeting, the first between the two sides since the Chinese civil war ended in 1949.

Taiwan’s government had earlier announced the meeting, saying the leaders would discuss cross-strait issues.
