Abstract: How the relationship between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will evolve in the future, or will eventually see a solution, is of great importance not only to East Asia, but also to the West because of the United States’ (US) involvement with both sides. This essay deals with the Cross-Strait issue between the PRC and Taiwan and will present an overview of the relations between the two sides of the Strait, as well as assessing whether or not the PRC is interested in maintaining the current status quo. This essay will take the position that the People’s Republic of China is pro status quo and examine the reasons behind its position.
Keywords: People’s Republic of China, Republic of China, Taiwan, International Relations, Cross-Strait, Security.
