BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Taiwan's Soong meets Hu Jintao Taiwan's Soong meets Hu Jintao
The head of Taiwan's opposition People First Party, James Soong, has met Chinese President and Communist Party leader Hu Jintao in Beijing.

The two men were expected to discuss the impasse between China and Taiwan.

Mr Soong's "bridge-building" trip follows soon after that of another Taiwanese opposition leader, Nationalist Party chairman Lien Chan.

Mr Lien was the first Nationalist head to visit China since the party fled to Taiwan after losing the 1949 civil war.

Taiwan's President Chen Shui-bian has given both Mr Lien and Mr Soong's trip his blessing.

But despite being the island's leader, Mr Chen himself is unlikely to receive such an invitation, analysts say.
