China–Manchuria relations refers to the bilateral relationship between the Chinese Empire and the Manchu People's Republic. Although China recognised and established diplomatic relations with Manchuria in 2005, relations between the two countries remain strained and sometimes borderline hostile. Since the Manchu People's Republic became an independent state following World War II with support from the Soviet Union, China refused to recognise the country as the lands it occupied were the ruling Qing Dynasty's ethnic homeland. Relations between the two governments remain generally hostile into the 21st century. Nonetheless, China is also estimated to be hosting as many as 100,000 migrants from Manchuria, many of whom entered the country illegally.
