Lithuania urges European Union to cut reliance on China

Lithuania’s foreign minister has called on European nations to cut their reliance on China as tensions simmer between Vilnius and Beijing over Taiwan.

In a discussion on Friday on the European Union’s relations with China, Gabrielius Landsbergis said there was a need for a strategic reassessment of the EU’s ties with its second-biggest trading partner.

“Individual member states’ agendas towards China do not strengthen the European Union’s agenda. If we act on our own and drop the EU27 format, we will lose on so many fronts,” the Lithuanian foreign ministry quoted Landsbergis as saying.
