From the Japanese perspective, Dongsha, Xisha, and Nansha have completely different legal statuses: Dongsha is "Japanese-occupied Chinese territory"; Xisha is French territory or Chinese territory; Nansha, which Japan calls "New South Islands", is Japanese territory , under the jurisdiction of Kaohsiung, the Governor's Office of Taiwan. When postwar territorial arrangements were discussed during World War II, Dongsha Island was almost never discussed. It can be seen that all parties agree that Dongsha is Chinese territory.
Then according to the arrangement before the Japanese occupation, Dongsha should still belong to Guangdong Province. In the early post-war period, the Republic of China did not care about "taking over" the islands in the South China Sea. It was not until September 1946 (more than a year after the end of World War II) that troops were sent to Dongsha Island. When discussing how to "take over", it was initially proposed that the islands in the South China Sea should be whatsapp list under the jurisdiction of Taiwan. But in the end, it was decided that all the islands in the South China Sea were placed under the ownership of Guangdong Province. Since Dongsha Island originally belonged to Guangdong Province, it was regarded as "Chinese territory occupied by Japan" during the war, and it was also ruled by Guangdong Province after the war.
Therefore, it is more correct to think that Dongsha Island "belongs to Guangdong". Taiping Island Compared with the ownership of Dongsha Island, the ownership of Taiping Island is much more complicated. The Spratly Islands, now known as the "Spratly Islands" in Chinese, have never had a generally recognized sovereignty in history. The sovereignty of Taiping Island is still disputed by China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. As far as Taiping Island is concerned.
