A giant panda, offered by China in Taiwan has given birth to a second female, the Taipei Zoo announced on Monday.

Yuan Yuan and his partner Tuan Tuan, whose names mean "meeting" or "unity" in Chinese, had been offered by China to Taiwan in 2008 to symbolize the improvement in relations between the two countries.

"We hoped that his mother could take care of him. But Yuan Yuan was surely very tired by this delivery ... so, after evaluation, we decided to take his baby away from him" so that he would be fed by the carers, said the zoo in a statement.

The baby panda is in stable condition after being treated for a slight back injury.

In 2013, Yuan Yuan gave birth to Yuan Zai, a female. She was the first giant panda born in Taiwan.

Generally, Beijing lends its pandas and all offspring must be sent to China.

In a rare sprain for this use, Taiwan was allowed to keep Yuan Zai because his parents were offered, according to the Taipei authorities.

The couple's arrival in 2008 had sparked a real "panda mania" across the island, especially after the birth of Yuan Zai.

The island and the continent have been governed separately since 1949, but the communist regime claims sovereignty over Taiwan.

Since the election in 2016 of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, China has excluded any offer to negotiate with Taiwan and intensified pressure against an island that it still sees as a rebel province called to return to the fold of the mother country, by force if necessary.

Less than 1,600 pandas are still living in freedom, mainly in the Chinese province of Sichuan, and 300 are in captivity in the world.
