Abstract: China regards Taiwan as a province awaiting reunification with the mainland. China is a great power and has always claimed her sovereignty over Taiwan. In terms of size and national strength, Taiwan is a small entity with regard to size and military strength of great power China. How could such small Taiwan counter a great power? Indeed, the United States is the most influential international actor and obstacle for China on Taiwan Issue. The notion of Cross-Strait relationship has always referred to Sino-U.S. relationship. Taiwan has become the core issue in Sino-American relations. If handled inappropriately, Taiwan issue has posed the most direct challenge to a stability of Sino-American relationship. After the 9/11 terrorism attacks, the world has witnessed a significant improvement in ties between the two countries.
