Mainland Affairs Council Minister Wang Yu-chi said early Tuesday at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport before departing for Nanjing to meet his counterparts that no document will be signed during and after the Wang-Zhang meetings. Wang also reiterated that both sides will send out press releases separately after Wang’s meeting with Zhang Zhi-jun, the Minister of Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council PRC.

Wang-Zhang meetings have been described as historic as it marks the first formal meeting between the chiefs responsible for cross-Strait affairs from both sides since the Communist Party of China took the helm of mainland China and the Kuomintang fled to Taiwan in 1949.

The Wang-Zhang meeting is scheduled at 2pm Tuesday at the Nanjing Purple Palace. Both of the top officials will make opening remarks publicly at the beginning of the meeting, followed by a number of closed-door meetings. This first-ever top officials meeting is expected to touch on the issues such as the Ma-Xi meeting, namely a breakthrough for leaders of both sides, Taiwan's participation in regional economy organizations, cross-Strait politics, setting up representative offices mutually, and allowing humanitarian visits.

Both Wang and Zhang are going to hold a press conference separately on Tuesday evening.
