Negotiations between Taiwan and China on the torch relay route for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games are at a dead end, and the torch will not come to Taiwan, international and Taiwan Olympic officials said Friday.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that it had been following discussions between China's and Taiwan's Olympic committees, and that a "solution between the two has not been found ... The route will now have to go ahead without a stop in Chinese Taipei."
At a Taipei news conference, Taiwan Olympic Committee Chairman Tsai Chen-wei said that the IOC had demanded a September 20 cut-off date for negotiations on the relay, and that with the deadline having passed, Taiwan could not be on the route.
Yang Chung-he, chairman of Chinese Taipei Sports Federation, added, "China suddenly changes her mind. China has brought the terms that we previously rejected back to our discussion in August. Therefore we cannot reach a consensus regarding the torch relay."
"Chinese Taipei" is a term often used internationally for the island or its sports teams.
Taiwan and China split amid civil war in 1949, and communist Beijing still claims the democratic, self-governed island as Chinese territory.
It often objects to Taiwan's name being formally used in international events. Taipei is Taiwan's capital city.
The IOC e-mail, from Emmanuelle Moreau, media relations manager from the International Olympic Committee, expressed regret over Taiwan's non-inclusion in the route.
The torch controversy began in April, when Taiwan backed out of participating in the relay because of a dispute over the route.
The route proposed by Beijing organisers had the torch arriving in Taiwan from Vietnam on April 30, 2008, and going on to China-controlled Hong Kong.
Many in Taiwan had pushed for a route that took the torch from Taiwan to China via another country.
The self-governing island objects to any measures that appear to consider it a part of Chinese territory.
It had contended that the contiguity of the Taiwan and Hong Kong stops made this appear to be the case.
AP Television interviewed a few residents of Taipei on Friday and opinion appeared to be mixed.
Ms Yeh said the sports relay "shouldn't involve politics. It is part of the sports activity and should go back to discussions related to sports."
Ms Chen thought the torch relay would promote Taiwan overseas.
"Everyone knows the Olympic torch relay. Why we don't let it come to Taiwan? We should let the world know about Taiwan," she said.
