May Mongolian  want  to return back.


They need money to develop their infrastructure. Without an adequate infrastructure they cannot take advantage of the abundance of natural resources like minerals, timber etc.

China has money. Economic problems that are thought to be the main reason for the current discontent in Mongolia.
(mostly harmless)

Mengzhi, I am not sure of the point you are making.  Mongolia left China in 1911, but in the years that followed Chinese soldiers returned there and under pressure from Russia and the new Republic of China it changed its claim of independence to 'autonomy' within China.  Successful formal independence (in practice relying on Russian support) did not come until the 1920s, as I said.  Now, can you relate what you're saying to my question.. what's your opinion on Mongolia's status?

Oh, and the 'Qin' dynasty should be spelt 'Qing'- I encourage you to keep working on your pinyin and maybe save your arrogance at least until you can correctly use the official romanization system taught to every primary school pupil of what you claim is your country.

Richardpap- actually a Chinese friend once told me her teacher had taught her that the Mongolian people dearly wanted to be part of China, but for some reason (presumably evil Russia?) couldn't.  I asked why on earth a government would be willing to give up its sovereignty, and apparently the answer was that Mongolia had no access to the sea.  To which I could only laugh and say (picking one example out of many) 'Switzerland'.

...all questions worth discussing, Correction.  But this is a forum about China.

By the way, was I imagining it or was there a reply from Chairman above earlier?  I thought he'd disappeared.. and then he disappeared again!

Ah, fair enough.  It's interesting that, his vanished sentence aside, there don't seem to be strong feelings about this issue.

Close enough is good enough ?

thepeop ,

Thanks for the correction , it is " Qing ' dynasty instead of the much older " Qin " .

My point , for the nth time is Mongolia ( vs Inner Mongolia ) are two separate territories and entities . Mongolia became independent in 1911 . The PRC did not come into being until 1949 !! What are you arguing about ?
