This morning she will pay her respects at the Mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen, the founder of KMT. She will leave for Beijing and meet with Communist Party leader Xi Jinping on Tuesday, and attend the Cross-Strait forum to be held on Wednesday.

Before her departure, Hung said the aim of this trip is to promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

“Peace, it is a trip of peace. We wish to create a peaceful cross-strait relationship. Because communication is hampered, we feel that the temperature of the civil exchange should be maintained. We will continue to push the cross-strait civil exchange, to make sure it will not be suspended and will achieve some good results,” Huang said.
