Slovenian prime minister calls for support for Lithuania over China spat

Brussels, Sept. 15 (CNA) Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa on Monday urged European Union nations to show support for Lithuania, which has reportedly faced retaliation from the Chinese government for its decision to deepen ties with Taiwan.

“Expelling the Lithuanian Ambassador from China and using trade as a weapon in a diplomatic dispute against one EU Member State is a reprehensible event which will have an impact on overall EU-China Relations,” Jansa said in a letter addressed to the European Council members, which was revealed by American media company The Politico on Wednesday.
