China should not pay too much attention to Lithuania, because it can “crush it like a fly”, writes the Chinese portal “Global Times” in the context of the opening of the diplomatic mission of Taiwan, which Beijing considers its territory, in Vilnius.
“Lithuania is just a clown who imitates courage and loyalty. “China will, without a doubt, inflict serious damage on it, but we should not concentrate on the fight against such a small country,” the article reads.
According to Chinese journalists, their country should dedicate more time to the forces behind Lithuania, ie the European Union and the United States.
“Beijing can calmly decide how to punish Vilnius. That should make Lithuania feel damaged and demonstrate China’s status as a great power. However, that should not jeopardize our interests and strategy on the international arena as a whole “, the article concludes.
It should be reminded that, despite the decisive protests of Beijing, a representative office of Taiwan was opened in Lithuania on November 18. The decision has upset China, which believes that Vilnius’ move is a violation of the principles of its territorial integrity, as well as interference in the country’s internal affairs.
Chinese authorities have lowered the level of diplomatic relations with the Baltic state to the level of charge d’affaires because of the check, Vilnius expressed regret. Lithuania says that the disclosure of Taiwan’s representative office is based on economic interests.
