    Just like the USSR rubber stamped the transfer of nuclear tech to China.

    Since forever, which explains why the Chinese name for that region is "New Territory". Sounds like Since whenever.

    Must be the foreign forces like Tibetian, Uyghurs whose land is now forcefully occupied by China, illegally.

    You have clearly no idea about "modern" China's history Laughing

    Khrushchev never wanted to give China the ability to create the atom bomb - it was Mao who insisted feverishly.
    You should seriously brush up on China/USSR's history!

    A name which could go back 2 millenniums, for all we know, as that's about the time that China first expanded to what's today known as Xinjiang

    A bit hard for an American to wrap their mind around I know, that someone's idea of 'new territory' could still refer to land that's been part of their state for several times longer than your entire nation's history Rolling Eyes
