SMALL WORLD: State of Uncertainty
Taiwan's Rachel Chen came back to PSU for her graduate degree
By ANDREW NASH The Morning Sun
Name: Rachael Chen
PITTSBURG —The status of Taiwan is difficult to explain.
In a way, the country is not a country and the nation is not a nation.
In 1949, Chiang Kai-shek and the then-government of China fled communist rule and attempted to claim sovereignty over mainland China.
The communists took control of China proper and claims control over Taiwan. In fact, to this day the communist government considers the Taiwan government illegitimate.
The United States does not have formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, and officials have stated that the U.S. neither supports Taiwanese independence Taiwan natives like Rachel Chen said that the modern view of Taiwan depends on who you ask.
