News: China wants the Olympic torch for the 2008 Beijing Games to pass through rival Taiwan, a sensitive request that could drag the IOC into a political flash point.
The International Olympic Committee will not make a decision until next year or possibly 2007, said Gilbert Felli, executive director of the Olympic Games.
Beijing officials submitted the relay plan this week to the IOC, Wang Wei, executive vice president of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games, said Thursday.

'It's still under discussion,' Wang said during an inspection trip with IOC members to Qingdao, site of the 2008 sailing competition.
The proposal highlights how China hopes to use the Beijing Games to advance political goals, in this case its claims that Taiwan is part of China.
