Administratively, it is Kinmen County (Chinese: 金門縣; pinyin: Jīnmén Xiàn) of Fujian Province, Republic of China (ROC). The county is also claimed by the People's Republic of China (PRC) as part of its own Fujian Province's Quanzhou Prefecture. It is geographically very near Xiamen, no more than 2 kilometres (1.2 mi). Some islands of other counties, such as Wuqiu, were transferred to the jurisdiction of Kinmen County by the ROC government following its defeat in the Chinese Civil War and retreat to Taiwan.
