It's all settled when the Bolshoy Ussuriysky/Heixiazi is divided between the two countries: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolshoy_Ussuriysky_Island

No - and historically China probably has more reason to have a territorial dispute with Russia than most of the other countries. Difference is Russia is far scarier than any of the other countries. China is for all intents and purposes a bully.

A little surprised jetpunk hasn't fallen foul of the Chinese authorities already given it lists Taiwan as a separate country in all its quizzes. For what it's worth, having been to Taiwan, I agree with this approach. When a place has its own currency, border controls, government and military it is hard not to call it an independent nation.

By these criteria, Somaliland might qualify more than countries in the EU.

Strategically speaking, the lands that China has conflict in these countries are better than the lands with Russia. Most of these conflicts stem from the South China Sea with the numerous islands, China needs to have control of these islands if it wants to ensure economic security. If they don't, they'll always be at the mercy of NATO countries, and if they anger them then they can kiss their economy goodbye. The lands near Russia on the other hand might be rich in timber and natural gas deposits, but China already has a booming industry to the point it doesn't really need those extra deposits in comparison to economic security.

@Akula: many non-recognized natons are grateful for your comment. Among them Transdnistria and South Ossetia. However as Tshalla says, does that disqualify many EU nations and some other (Does Costa Rica have a military? Does ZImbabwe have a currency? Does the Vatican really have a government?) :)

Can't really say that the EU countries are not independent because some of them have a shared currency, border controls, etc.

They have these things in common because each independent country, independently agreed on them.

I hear a Chinese diplomat got in an argument with European diplomats about calling it Taiwan, and not Chinese Taipei. So China's having a bad time trying to influence Europe right now.

Why? The quiz is about territorial disputes, why would having that make any sense?

To be honest, it should be a map or China or something, or at least the current leader.

Hmm, I thought the Shaksgam Valley in northern Kashmir (just north of K2) would make Pakistan count as well. Apparently there was an agreement signed by Pakistan and China that laid out the border... but the area is also claimed by India, so it's not viewed as fully legal or binding.

In a nutshell, Out of Kashmir, China administers Aksai Chin and claims parts of Gilgit Balistan. Pakistan recognizes these claims, but then claims the rest of it. India claims the whole thing. If Pakistan chose not to recognize China's claims, then they would have no allies amongst bordering countries.

The dispute with taiwan is not territorial. It's two administrations competing for the sole legitimate government of the whole nation.

China claims it controls the island of Taiwan. The nation of Taiwan disagrees. The dispute may be larger than just territory, but the territorial dispute is certainly a facet of it.

South Korea (over the Socotra Rock)

North Korea (Maritime dispute in Sea of Japan)

Singapore (Maritime dispute in South China Sea)

Nepal (Over various Tibetan lands)

Laos (A large chunk of land belonging to Laos is claimed by China)

Mongolia (Over borders with Inner Mongolia)

A quick google search shows there is a lot more border disputes than what was listed here
