one china, with each side (of the Taiwan Strait) making its own interpretation
In late 1992, Taiwan and China reached an agreement to orally express the term “one
China” in their own ways. Taipei stressed that Taiwan and China had different interpretations of
“one China” so that China should not suppress the usage “Republic of China” in the international
arena. Beijing emphasized that both sides reached agreement to insist on using the one-China principle.
In practice, Taipei and Beijing have different interpretations of the 1992 consensus and continued
to confront each other in the international arena over the “one-China” principle. Author
