From history Taiwan has had very close relations with China, with several Chinese regimes having control of the Taiwan. Moreover, the region has also been ruled by other countries among them Japan and the Dutch. In the recent years there have been trends to recognize Taiwan as a state but Chinese government has often claimed it owns the title over Taiwan and that the government of Taiwan is just like any other regional government of other parts of china. The question has been is china a government in exile for Taiwan? Can Taiwan claim to be an independent state? This paper looks at these questions by dissecting the Taiwan dilemma on the basis of the Montevideo convention on the rights and duties of states 1933.
