China invites Taiwan to the table and talks peace.

[Kuomintang* Chairman] Wu in turn said the Chinese and Taiwanese should make sure that their people never take up arms against each other again, in comments that also touched on this month’s devastating earthquake in China’s southwest.

“We cannot guarantee there won’t be any natural disasters any more on both sides of the strait, but through our mutual efforts, we can ensure there is no war,” he said.

Is China opening up, or appeasing the west, or both?
