It's quite obvious that China's map from the Qing Dynasty includes the now Mongolia, or what is still called 'the outer-Mongolia' by many, as well as large chunks of lands elsewhere, such as north-east of the Leilongjing River and to the outer west of Xinjiang...|
Mongolia's independence was instigated by the Soviet Union who wanted to creat a buffer zone and a satelitte nation by taking advantage of the weak China after the 1911 Revolution. Mongolia's independence was not even recognized by the KMT government until 1945 under the pressure of the Soviet Union, when China was at its weakest again, after the war with Japan. Stalin had many designs on China, and the Mongolia issue was one of them.
For a large and multi-ethnic nation like China, ethinic conflicts should not be surprising things to happen. Tell us which country is free of ethnic issues. The United States, France, UK, Australia, New Zealand, to name a few. However, when a large country like China was weak, those coveting foreign powers would invariably take advantage of it to bully China and carve up China. Mongolia's independence occurred at one of those times.
Given the long history of being a part of China and it natural links with Inner Mongolia, if Mongolia should want to rejoin China in future, and of course as a possibility down the road, they could count on China's welcome.
China has now grown strong enough to defend her own national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity and national unity. Those well-wishers whould embrace China and seriously work with her for a better world tomorrow. Those day dreamers should stop dreaming and get real, to say the least!!!
