Maddog reports at Taiwan Matters that the US has said that Taiwan isn’t part of the PRC, and that China has killed a possible attempt to have the UN vote on the issue. He writes:

What we at [Taiwan Matters] have been saying all along has supposedly been said by US officials in a letter to the United Nations, quoted here in an FTV article via Sina.com:
美不接受台灣為PRC一部分

美國上禮拜才說出,台灣和中華民國都不是國家的話來,5日就傳出,美國寫信給聯合國說「不接受台灣是中華人民共和國一部份」的說法。藍綠對此都表示肯定,民進黨甚至說,要更加努力推動入聯公投。

[Tim Maddog translation:]
US doesn’t accept that Taiwan is part of the PRC

The United States spoke out just last week to say that neither Taiwan nor the Republic of China are countries. News reports on September 5 said that the United States wrote a letter to the United Nations saying that it “does not accept that Taiwan is a part of the People’s Republic of China.” The blue and green camps both confirmed the news. The DPP said it will exert even more effort to promote its planned referendum on joining the UN.
