The separation between mainland China and Taiwan has been going on since the civil war in China after the Second World War. Taiwan, which the People’s Republic of China claims is part of its territory, has enjoyed de facto independence since 1949.
After the Communist Party of China (CCP) led by Mao Zidong seized power in 1949 and declared the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in the civil war, members of the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) led by Chiang Kaishek settled in Taiwan and established the “Republic of China” in 1912. He declared independence, claiming that his power continued on the island.
