Research on Taiwan's Position as a US Insular Area (Unincorporated Territory)


01 Jun 2006

www.taiwanadvice.com, Taipei, Taiwan

Supplied note:
"This [site, established in 2002, deals with] new research on the truth of Taiwan's international legal position - rcsl and rwh."

"After taking into account all [available evidence], a full statement of Taiwan's current position under international law can be derived. Based on the SFPT [San Francisco Peace Treaty, effective from April 28, 1952 - ed.], the US Constitution, and the Insular Cases of the US Supreme Court, Taiwan can be classified as 'unincorporated territory under USMG [United States Military Government].' This means that Taiwan is an insular area of the United States."
