TAIPEI, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese mainland's negotiator on cross-Strait ties Chen Yunlin started talks with his Taiwan counterpart Chiang Pin-kung on Tuesday morning in Taipei.

Chen, president of the mainland-based Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS), and Chiang, chairman of the Taiwan-based Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF), will give a final touch on a cross-Strait medical and health cooperation agreement and exchange views on an investment protection deal during their talks.
