Washington, Oct. 11 (CNA) A petition submitted to a White House petition network is gathering signatures to urge the U.S. government to recognize Taiwan as an independent country.

In the White House's "We the People" petition website, the petition initiated on Oct. 7 by someone identified only as "K.W." had collected more than 40,000 signatures endorsing the petition as of Oct. 11, according to the website.

Under the rules of "We the People," a petition needs to collect 100,000 signatures or more in 30 days after being submitted to the website, and in 60 days after the threshold is reached, in order for the White House to review it and issue a response to the request.

The deadline for gathering enough signatures is Nov. 6.  This is the web link to:   We The Perople    [FULL  STORY]
