re: China: PRC at 60; One China Policy (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines/US) (John Eipper, USA, 10/07/09 10:21 pm)

Bienvenido Macario writes: I don't know when the "One China Policy" gained worldwide recognition but under this policy, China is claiming that the People's Republic of China (PRC) is the sole legitimate government of mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Tibet. This policy became a pre-requisite for all countries wishing to establish diplomatic relations with China, the most populous country in the world. Yet by August 1992 China and South Korea have established official diplomatic relations after indirect trades since 1975.  A S. Korean Davis Cup Tennis Team visited China in March 1984 and a Chinese Basketball Team visited S. Korea in April of 1984. Interestingly, while China demands a "One-China" Policy, it employs a "Two-Korea" Diplomacy. The Preamble of the PRC's Constitution states: "Taiwan is part of the sacred territory of the People's Republic of China. It is the lofty duty of the entire Chinese people, including our compatriots in Taiwan, to accomplish the great task of reunifying the motherland." From:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-China_policy#Evolution_of_the_policy       Why not take back all the Chinese people off Taiwan, re-educate them in China and give the island (Formosa or Taiwan) back to its native inhabitants? Now, South Korean Ban ki-Moon must have learned from China.   He is head of the UN and a South Korean at the same time.     JE comments:  To empty Taiwan/Formosa of its ethnic Chinese inhabitants would be a human rights disaster of unprecedented proportions.  I don't see this happening...fortunately.  Yet Bienvenido Macario's post has me thinking:  what is the strength of the nativist movement on Taiwan, and how freely can they operate? -- For information about the World Association of International Studies (WAIS), and its online publication, the World Affairs Report, read its homepage by simply double-clicking on: http://wais.stanford.edu/ John Eipper, Editor-in-Chief, Adrian College, MI 49221 USA
