Lithuania: Taiwan regime opens de facto embassy, despite whining by Beijing regime

Source: South China Morning Post [Hong Kong]

“Taiwan opened a de facto embassy in Lithuania on Thursday, in a diplomatic breakthrough for the self-ruled island as it brushed aside Beijing’s strong opposition to the move. An enraged Beijing in August recalled its ambassador to the Baltic state and demanded Vilnius do the same, after Taipei announced its office in the city would be called the Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania. Other Taiwan offices in Europe and the United States use Taipei in their name, avoiding a reference to the island itself, which Beijing [pretends is] its own territory awaiting reunification.” (11/18/21)
