Taiwan unveils new passport in latest provocation aimed at China

PressTV 6 views

Taiwan's secessionist government has introduced a newly redesigned passport, with the purported aim of helping differentiate its citizens from those of mainland China, in a move that will likely further infuriate Beijing amid the recent spike in tensions.

On the new passports, rolled out on Monday, the word "Taiwan" has been enlarged, while "Republic of China" - the territory's official name -  has been removed. It only remains in Chinese and in small English font around the national emblem.
