China's Backyard: Beijing and Tapei in Landmark Talks

Senior leaders from China and Taiwan have held their first official talks since nationalists fled the mainland and the advancing Communists back in 1949.

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Diaraye Bah

By François PICARD
