Lithuania Ambassador to Leave China
Translated by: MOS Gourmet Team – Chevalier
According to Beijing news on September 3, the envoys of the European Union in China gathered at the Lithuanian embassy to farewell Diana, the Lithuanian ambassador in Communist China, who is about to return home. The ambassadors of various nations also took photos with Diana to express their solidarity and support!
Since the former Taipei Trade Representative Office in the capital of China was officially renamed to be Taiwan Trade Representative Office, the brave behavior of Lithuania, a small EU country, angered the Chinese Communist Party. On August 10, the CCP announced the recall of its ambassador to Lithuania and demanded that Lithuania recall its presence in Beijing. This move is equivalent to a disguised expulsion, causing an uproar in the world. However, in this diplomatic dispute, the European Commission and other countries have clearly expressed their supports for the stance of Lithuania, one of the members in EU, and the CCP feels humiliated. On August 13, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Sherman issued a statement saying that she made a phone call and spoke with Lithuanian Foreign Minister Landsbergis on the matter and reiterated U.S. support and appreciation for Lithuania.
