Official relations between the central government of the PRC and Taiwan were interrupted in 1949 after the Kuomintang forces, defeated in the civil war, led by Chiang Kai-shek, moved to the island. Beijing does not recognize Taiwan's sovereignty and is jealous of other countries' contacts with Taiwan, insisting on a “one-China policy.” It implies that Taiwan is an integral part of Chinese territory and that the PRC authorities are the only legitimate Chinese government.
