United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758 of 25 October 1971 recognized the representatives of the People's Republic of China as "the only legitimate representative of China to the United Nations" and expelled the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek "from the place which they unlawfully occupy at the United Nations". The close of fighting in WWII in the Pacific in 1945 saw the Republic of China government, represented by its governing party, the Kuomintang, having jurisdiction over mainland China and Taiwan. Four years later, the Chinese Civil War resulted in 1949 with the Communists in control of mainland China and the Nationalists in control of Taiwan. The Communists declared the People's Republic of China as the successor state of the Republic of China, while the Nationalists championed the continued existence of the Republic of China as the sole legitimate Chinese government. In the context of the Cold War, both sides claimed to be the only legitimate Chinese government, and each side refused to maintain diplomatic relations with countries that officially recognized the other side.
