Seventy years after the war in Taiwan

Qiu Shijie

At the end of World War II in 1945, Taiwan was returned to its motherland, China, after years of Japanese colonial era. Five years later, however, separation came to the PRC and the ROC due to civil war and the KMT’s retreat to Taiwan, resulting in cross-Strait confrontations between Mainland China and Taiwan. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Pacific War.
