Qantas caves in to China request over Taiwan independence

Qantas caves in to China request over Taiwan independence, by The Australian.

Qantas Airways Ltd says it plans to change its website to refer to Taiwan as a Chinese territory, not an independent nation, but that it needs extra time to comply with the request from Beijing.

China’s aviation regulator in April gave three dozen airlines a May 25 deadline to remove references on their websites or in other material that suggest Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau are part of countries independent from China.

The White House has described the move as “Orwellian nonsense”.
