Breaking Away = Formalizing current de facto independence. In many writings Taiwan is described as “breaking away” or a “breakaway” province. Such language implies that Taiwan is part of China, though under international law it is not. It is always better to write that Taiwan is formalizing its independence and is not “breaking away” from China.
Thanks for Andrew Kerslake and Tim Maddog for inspiration. This one will keep growing.
