High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Retrocession Day is an
annual observance in Taiwan to commemorate the end of 50 years of
Japanese colonial rule on October 25, 1945. Supporters of Taiwan
independence have argued that Taiwanese retrocession was invalid
since there is no precedent in international law in which an
instrument of surrender effected a transfer of sovereignty, and
they base their belief in part on President Truman's June 27, 1950
statement regarding Taiwan's "undetermined status," which they hold
as proof of the leading Allies' view. As late as November 1950, the
US State Dept. announced that no formal act restoring sovereignty
over Formosa and the Pescadores to China had yet occurred.
Retrocession Day is currently not an official public holiday in the
Republic of China; however, memorial activities are still being
held by civilian organizations and individuals.
