China Reports Taiwan to UN

Forbes reports:
China has expressed its concerns directly to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan about Taiwan's scrapping of a unification council with the mainland, Xinhua news agency reported.
China's Ambassador to the UN, Wang Guangya, told the UN's leadership that Taiwan was threatening to destablize the "current peaceful situation."

Forbes notes the irony:
China's direct approach to Annan and the United Nations comes despite its repeated insistence that the Taiwan issue is an internal affair and that it tolerates no interference from outside forces.
