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. Relations have certainly come a long way since the mid 1990s, when Beijing test-fired missiles into Taipei's waters. So why this thaw in tensions? And what do Taiwan’s long-term prospects look like?

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