The Taiwan issue has been open since 1949, when the communist People’s Republic of China was proclaimed on the mainland, and the Kuomintang party that ruled the country before fled to Taiwan. Since 1992, the “one China policy” has come into effect, according to which there can be only one Chinese state in the world. Countries that maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan automatically cut off relations with China.
