China: Beijing city regime fines 7-Eleven for noticing Taiwan is a country

Source: The Hill

“The Beijing municipal government fined 7-Eleven more than $7,000 because on its website the company listed the island of Taiwan as a country and displayed maps and borders that China called false. The Beijing branch of 7-Eleven was fined after it ‘wrongly presented Taiwan province as an independent country’ on its website, according to Hong Kong outlet South China Morning Post. The municipal government also said the company did not mark borders correctly for islands in the South China Sea, the sovereignty over which is disputed between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and other nations. In the past year, China has ramped up military and diplomatic pressure against the self-governing island of Taiwan, which it [pretends is] a rogue territory.” (01/08/22)
