China and Taiwan, implacable foes for generations, have swapped imprisoned spies in an unprecedented goodwill gesture.

The swap follows an historic meeting between the leaders of the two sides earlier in November.

China released Colonel Zhu Gongxun and Colonel Xu Changguo of Taiwan's Military Intelligence after they had been held for more than nine years, while Taiwan gave advance parole to Chinese spy Li Zhihao, according to a statement from the office of Taiwan's president.
