President hopes cross-strait leaders' meeting will become regular

Taipei, Nov. 5 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou (???) said Thursday that his upcoming "historic landmark" talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping (???) will mark the first step toward making such meetings a regular occurrence between the leaders of the two sides and will help further improve cross-Taiwan Strait relations. The fact that the two leaders will address each other as "Mister" rather than by their official titles indicates "equality and dignity," Ma told a press conference, adding that it reflects "flexibility and pragmatism" in the conduct of bilateral ties.
