Just weeks before Taiwan holds general and presidential elections, Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou announced he will hold face-to-face talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Singapore.

The meeting Saturday will be the first between Taiwanese and Chinese leaders since 1949 and authorities in China are predicting it will be a “major historic milestone” in the development of cross-strait relations.

In Taiwan, opposition politicians immediately voiced their concern about the talks and dozens began to rally in the capital, Taipei. Some called for the impeachment of Ma, noting that before he was re-elected to a second term in office, the president pledged to not meet with China's leaders or discuss unification.

According to Chinese state media, the “cross-strait leaders” will not address one another as president during the meeting, but instead call one another “Mister.”

After holding brief talks in the afternoon, the two will hold separate press conferences and dine together in the evening.

Relations between Taiwan and China have bloomed during Ma's tenure, but so has public concern -- especially among younger voters -- about the island's over-reliance on China.

Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen said no private agreements will be signed during the talk.

Eric Chu, the Nationalist Party's presidential candidate, echoed China's position about the meeting, saying the talks would be an important milestone for cross-strait relations.

In the United States, White House spokesman John Earnest welcomed the news, "The fundamental interest of the United States is in a stable and peaceful cross-strait relationship."
