…Hmmm…historical sovereignty…??… Since the Peoples Republic of China dates only from 1950, then I presume the historical sovereignty they claim really lies with their vanquished predecessor, The Republic of China, founded by Sun Yat Sen. So they do recognize who the legitimate Chinese government is after all, or at least as long it benefits their communist treachery and thievery.
