Change the present "Taiwan, Province of China" to "Taiwan"

Taiwan is definitely not "a province of China".


We, the Taiwanese, have elected our leader through direct democratic means, fully support the democratic rights of self-determination, and the entitlement to certain inalienable rights of all humanity.
Taiwan has its own political, postal, financial, and socioeconomic systems that is run independently. We are citizens of Taiwan, not China. There is no "Taiwan, Province of China" in any of our documentation indicating our citizenship to Taiwan or any relevant information.

If the ISO does not rectify this problem, it would further increase our own pains of our identity being overruled. For the past six decades China had been threatening Taiwan with military conflict. They already have maintained a substantial number of missiles aimed at Taiwan, with annual increases in both numerical strength and weapon efficiency.

Due to present ISO standards, any statement made on a form in the Internet would change "Taiwan" as "Taiwan, Province of China". This is a tremendous insult both to us, the petitioners, and the Taiwanese community. We humbly plead the ISO to change this mistake and allow the Taiwanese people to proudly select their country as "Taiwan", not "Taiwan, Province of China".

The link below is the key evidence of the imperative need to rectify this mistake.

      San Francisco Treaty and the South China Sea

      Territorial and maritime disputes among China, Taiwan and several Southeast Asian countries are roiling the South China Sea region with little prospect of resolution anytime soon. The current uneasy status quo may be tenable so long as the parties embrace serious confidence-building measures through multilateral forums while maintaining effective deterrence vis-a-vis China and a commitment not to use offensive force.

      〔記者李欣芳/台北報導〕台灣的戰略地位美、中等國高度關注,前美國在台協會處長司徒文昨演講表示,台灣的戰略地位非常重要,卻常常被很多人忽視,中國對台灣有興趣,即是因台灣的戰略地位,因為中國要掌握海權,就要先掌控第一島鏈,也就是從日本沖繩到台灣、菲律賓這一帶,如果中國潛艦部署在台灣,將可以掌控太平洋海域,甚至威脅到美國。

      "I'm sorry. It's not safe to talk right now. We are being monitored," said one political adviser within the Nationalist Party, whose leaders have both driven the investigation and have been the ones most damaged by it. Already, Taiwan's minister of justice has been forced out, and its high-profile legislative speaker has been expelled by his party.

      Economic Integration and Cultural Divergence: Obstacles to Political Integration Across the Taiwan Strait Written by Jens Damm. One of the most intriguing features of the current cross-Strait policies of Ma Ying-jeou, especially since his re-election as President of the "Republic of China (on Taiwan)" in 2012, is the divergence between the expectations of many outside observers of a rapid rapprochement between the two sides in the political arena and the obvious stagnation of the integration process during the early months of his administration.
