[quote=“Jive Turkey”]There is also a slim possibility that Beijing will officially recognize the ROC. This idea has been floating around among mainland intellectuals for a few years, but I’ve heard it bounced around a lot more now that Chen is going to have another four years at the helm.
The deal would recongize ROC authority over Taiwan and the other islands under its current administration. The ROC would be able to have official embassies or consulates in all countries and it would keep its military. The ROC would NOT have full membership status in international organizations. In the UN, an ambassador for “China” and his entourage would represent both the PRC and ROC; in reality, the amabassador would always be a mainlander. In other organizations, the ROC would have observer status. In effect, the ROC and PRC would be members of a Chinese Federation, leaving poor Hong Kong with the lesser one country two systems deal and firmly under Beijing’s control. The PRC and ROC would set up representative offices in each other’s capitals and a figurehead federation council could be set up.[/quote]
This proposal would not give Taiwan independence, it would take it away. :raspberry: Basically this proposal would be total and utter BS. :raspberry: :raspberry: Taiwan is already INDEPENDENT and not ruled by or associated with any country in the world. The only things lacking are membership in international organizations like the UN as well as international recognition by other countries.
Goes to show you what a lack of education did to the minds of those so called Cultural revolution intellectuals.
In Taiwan only totally ignorant pig farmers with PRC brides would agree to this deal. I doubt even the KMT would agree to this! Go Fish!
