Xi calls for end to cross-strait political issues, Xinhua says

Chinese President Xi Jinping {習近平} said cross-strait political issues should be addressed in phases and should not be passed on to future generations, the official Xinhua news agency reported Sunday. Xi made the remarks during a meeting with Siew Wan-chang {蕭萬長}, Taiwan’s former vice president, on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Bali, Indonesia, on Sunday.
