#China has decided to downgrade the diplomatic relations with #Lithuania to the level of charge d’affaires over its “erroneous” action on the Taiwan region, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Sunday. The move came three days after the Lithuanian government approved the establishment of the “Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania” by the Taiwan authorities.
