Denmark asked to correct information about Taiwan

TAIPEI -- Taiwan has asked Denmark to correct information on the website of its foreign ministry that shows Taiwan as part of China, a Taiwanese official said Wednesday.

“Our representative office in Denmark has brought up the issue with the Danish government,” said Anna Kao, spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Kao made the remarks when asked about a report in the Wednesday edition of Chinese-language Liberty Times that said Taiwan is included in a map of China on the website of Denmark's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After Taiwan raised the issue, Denmark said the matter will require “internal discussion,” according to Kao.

The “Denmark in China” section of the website states that “on these pages you can find contact information and read more about the organization and activities at the Danish Embassy and the representations in Shanghai, Chongqing, Guangzhou and Taipei,” as shown on a map.

I thought I was living in the Republic of China. According to this report the website doesn't distinguish between ROC or PRC and just states China. What's all the fuss about?

But Denmark, like most other Western countries, does not officially consider Taiwan to be a part of China nor do most of these countries actually recognize that there was ever a transfer of sovereignty over Taiwan to either government of 'China'.
