Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:
Can you list the top facts and stats about List of diplomatic missions of China?
Summarize this article for a 10 years old
This is a list of diplomatic missions of the People's Republic of China. The People's Republic of China has the largest number of active diplomatic posts in the world, including 265 bilateral posts (embassies and consulates) in 171 countries as well as 8 permanent missions to international organizations and two other posts (as of 2021).
For over fifty years, the PRC has been competing with the Republic of China for diplomatic recognition in the international community. Until the 1970s, most countries in the world recognized the Republic of China instead of the People's Republic of China. As of 2018, a small number of states have full diplomatic relations with the ROC (see Republic of China diplomatic missions); the ROC maintains unofficial relations with most states.
