Amend the errors of the Map textbook indicating Taiwan as a Chinese territory!
The current international Map textbook (Teikoku Shoin・Tokyo Shoseki) used by 1.2 million Japanese junior high school students incorrectly describes that Japan returned Taiwan to China in 1945 therefore Taiwan is a territory of the People’s Republic of China.
Surprisingly, this textbook was qualified for an official approval of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan.
Describing Taiwan as Chinese territory is a political propaganda of China to justify the Chinese invasion into Taiwan. How could Japan “renounce” sovereignty over Taiwan by San Francisco Peace Treaty concluded in 1951, IF Japan had has “returned” Taiwan to China in 1945?
These descriptions are clearly false since they do not agree to the opinion of the Japanese government and also to the reality that Taiwan is not under the rule of the People’s Republic of China.
