Will Taiwan Reunify with China?

December 20, 2017
Should Taiwan and China join together in the future, they would unify. By definition, they can never reunify.

The term reunify is problematic, because it falsely implies that Taiwan and China were once a single entity that then split. This is incorrect. The Republic of China (Taiwan) has never been a part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). In fact, the two sides fought against each other in the Chinese Civil War.
