    China certainly desn't like this cos they don't wanna admit to the existence of two Chinas. Taiwan doesn't like this either cos they don't want themselves to be called China.

      Tony, I don’t think you listened carefully enough! The ROC is happy to be called China, because it is China. Communist-occupied China also calls itself China. Too many people do not understand that Taiwan isn’t a break-away part of China, the mainland broke away from Taiwan. So Taiwan is China, and Mainland China is part of China. I hope that is clear!

        John, Have you ever been to Taiwan? Have you asked many Taiwanese their opinions on this? It would be presumptuous of me to say that all Taiwanese do not consider Taiwan part of China but it is without doubt true that an enormous chink of Taiwanese society hold this view. The name ‘Republic of China’ is seen as a vestige of history and a necessary sacrifice to make for the sake of peace and cooperation between Taiwan and China.
