About our Pratas Island news

Latest news on the Pratas Island, a group of three atolls in the north-western part of the South China Sea. They are administered by Taiwan (Republic of China) and are also claimed by the People's Republic of China.

The name of the island group in Chinese is Dongsha in Mandarin (literally “east sand”), and Tungsha in Cantonese. The atoll was also claimed by the Empire of Japan and occupied from May 1942 until 1945. The Japanese renamed it “Tungsha Tao” (東沙島, literally “East Sand Island”). It was administered as part of the Taiwan Province of the Empire of Japan. After World War II, the Republic of China (Taiwan) assumed control of the atoll.
