Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou (C), seen before his departure from the Sungshan Air force Base in Taipei, on November 7, 2015The leaders of China and Taiwan hold a historic summit Saturday that will put a once unthinkable presidential seal on warming ties between the former Cold War rivals. The meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwan’s Ma Ying-jeou in neutral Singapore is the first between leaders of the two sides since their 1949 split following the Chinese civil war won by the Communists. In Singapore, the luxury hotel where the summit is to take place was mobbed by at least 200 journalists from Taiwan, China and elsewhere clamouring for security clearance to the meeting.
