Trojan horses and Chinese Pandas

The Chinese government had promised in 2005 to send two pandas as a goodwill gesture to Taiwan

They actually began their journey to Taiwan this weeek:

Taiwan’s president, Mr Ma Ying-jeou, said when he took office this year that he would accept the pandas as part of efforts to improve relations with the mainland.

But Taiwanese pro-independence politicians don't want Taiwan to accept the pandas.

Guess why: the pandas are called Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, whose names together mean “reunion.” Sphere: Related Content
