Taipei, Feb. 1 (CNA) Taiwan's Foreign Ministry has instructed its representative office in Atlanta to demand a correction from delivery services provider FedEx over its "inappropriate" designation of Taiwan as "Taiwan, China" on its website.

"The company has not concretely responded to us yet, but the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta will continue to negotiate with FedEx to correct the erroneous designation," Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) spokeswoman Joanne Ou (歐江安) said in a statement Saturday.

Several netizens noticed on Friday that FedEx has designated Taiwan as "Taiwan, China" on its drop-down menu in the sender section and on its language menu at the bottom of the website.

One netizen said in an internet forum that he used the FedEx website in early January, and the designation was still "Taiwan" at the time.    [FULL  STORY]
