TAIPEI — Taiwan on Tuesday quietly marked the 60th anniversary of the day Nationalist forces accepted the surrender of Japanese troops in Taipei, bringing the curtain down on 50 years of Japanese colonial rule of the island.

President Chen Shui-bian joined other government officials for a small-scale ceremony to commemorate the day, where he stressed that "Taiwan's recovery from Japan does not amount to its return to China."
