ROC, PRC titles should be abolished, says legislator – CNA

From CNA via the Taipei Times (link):

A Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator said yesterday that both Taiwan and China should change their national designations to avoid confusion.

Speaking during a meeting at the Legislative Yuan on affairs of state, DPP Legislator Chen Chung-hsin (Èô≥Èáç‰ø°) said that when US President George W. Bush met with Chinese President Hu Jintao (ËÉ°Èå¶Êø§) on the lawn outside the White House for an official meeting on Thursday, the People’s Republic of China was incorrectly referred to by the announcer as the Republic of China prior to the playing of the national anthems.

Chen attributed the fiasco to the fact that Taiwan’s official title of the “Republic of China” was too similar to China’s.
