Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwan's leader Ma Ying-jeou are scheduled to meet in Singapore on Saturday, a mainland Taiwan affairs official said Wednesday in Beijing.

They will exchange views on promoting the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, said Zhang Zhijun, head of the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.

Relevant departments of the two sides have decided through consultation that the meeting will be made in the name of leaders of the mainland and Taiwan, Zhang said, adding it is a pragmatic arrangement in accordance with the one-China principle while cross-Strait political difference has not been resolved.

The Taiwan affairs chief of the Chinese mainland said on Wednesday that the scheduled meeting between Xi Jinping and Ma Ying-jeou is a "milestone" for cross-Strait relations, breaking through in direct exchange and communication between the two leaders.

Zhang Zhijun, head of the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said the meeting in Singapore on Saturday would help enhance trust across the Strait, consolidate common political grounds, push forward peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and safeguard peace and stability in the region.
