Map of Northeast China
Northeast China (simplified Chinese: ????; traditional Chinese: ????; pinyin: Zh?ngguó D?ngb?i) is a geographical region of China. It is separated from Russia largely by the Amur, Argun, and Ussuri rivers, from North Korea by the Yalu River and Tumen River, and from the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region by the Greater Khingan Range. The heartland of the region is the Northeast China Plain.
Notheast China defined by the government of the People's Republic of China includes the three northeastern provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning and thus the region is sometimes called the Three Northeast Provinces (????/????; D?ngb?i S?nsh?ng). Some people in parts of Inner Mongolia (like Chifeng) still call themselves Northeasterners. It is generally coterminous with some definitions of the historical region of Manchuria and is commonly referred to in English as such. It is also sometimes referred to as Inner Manchuria in contrast with Outer Manchuria, provinces lost to the Russian Empire, during the Qing Dynasty.
Another term for the area is Guandong (??/??; Gu?nd?ng) meaning "east of the gate," referring to the gate at Shanhaiguan. This name was also used by the Japanese to their leased territory of Dalian, as Kwantung Chou (???), and its Kwantung Army which was later mobilized to set up the puppet state of Manchukuo in Northeast China.
