Taipei, April 21 (CNA) The Mainland Affairs Council（MAC, 陸委會）said Tuesday that Beijing should squarely face the reality of the existence of the Republic of China and the fact that Taiwan and mainland China are under separate rule.
MAC made the statement in response to media reports that Nanjing University in a press conference earlier in the day launched “The Special History of the Republic of China,” a book which said the ROC was established in 1912 and ended in 1949.
MAC said that the portraits of the ROC in the university’s press release is contrary to the fact that the ROC has been objectively in existence since its birth in 1912. [FULL STORY]
