MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Russia’s foreign ministry hails a meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and President of Taiwan Ma Ying-jeou that took place over the past weekend in Singapore as a historic event, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Monday.

"We hail the November 7 meeting that had a historic character," she said. "We are confident it would be beneficial for the wellbeing of the entire Chinese nation, not only promoting consolidation of the country but strengthening security and stability and building up trust in the region."

The meeting between the Chinese and Taiwanese presidents was the first summit contact since the formation of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, when the Communist Party defeated the nationalist Kuomintang in mainland China and relocated the government of Republic of China to its present capital of Taipei.

Judging by comments that followed the hour-long consultations, no breakthrough was achieved. However, neither Beijing nor Taipei had expected anything of the kind from that meeting but the very fact of it taking place was seen as a breakthrough.
