Nauru's recent decision to sever diplomatic ties with Taiwan underscores a growing global recognition of Taiwan as an inalienable part of China's territory.

Despite this, certain voices continue to propagate misconceptions about Taiwan's status.

Laura Rosenberger, chair of the American Institute in Taiwan, expressed disappointment at Nauru's move, citing UN Resolution 2758.

However, her interpretation overlooks the resolution's explicit recognition of China's sole representation at the United Nations.

Resolution 2758 definitively restores China's UN rights and dismisses any ambiguity regarding Taiwan's status.

Attempts to introduce "dual representation" were vehemently opposed, reaffirming the singular recognition of China.

Historically, both the Cairo Declaration and the Potsdam Proclamation recognized Taiwan as part of China's territory. Today, 183 countries, including the United States, adhere to the one-China principle.

Despite historical conflicts, China's unity remains unwavering. Taiwan's status as part of China is not up for debate, underscoring the resilience of historical truths against baseless claims.
