Shaan-Gan-Ning Border Region

Shaan-Gan-Ning (traditional Chinese: 陝甘寧邊區; simplified Chinese: 陕甘宁边区; pinyin: Shǎn-Gān-Níng Biānqū) was one of the two border region governments with the capital at Yan'an, named after the provinces of Shaanxi, Gansu, and Ningxia. It was created by the CPC in agreement with the Kuomintang as a part of the Second United Front policy, substituting the former anti-Kuomintang Soviets.
