On May 28, 2008, WU Po-hsiung Hu Jintao, chairman of the KMT, met in Beijing as general secretary of the Communist Party of China, at the invitation of the CCP, for internal dialogue. During the meeting, the parties said the two sides set aside disputes across the Strait and work for a win-win situation based on the 1992 consensus.
