Taiwan’s first representative in Lithuania will be appointed by the current Taiwan representative in Latvia Huang Junyao

Taiwan’s representative office in Lithuania was officially established on Thursday (November 18) in Vilnius, the capital of the country. Since this is the first time that Taiwan has set up an office under the name of “Taiwanese Representative Office” in a non-diplomatic country, it is regarded as a diplomatic victory by Taiwan.

At a regular press conference on Friday (November 19), Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian criticized the Lithuanian government’s move as creating “one China, one Taiwan” in the world and “damaging China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity”, and stressed that China will take action. “All necessary measures to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and all consequences arising therefrom shall be the responsibility of the Lifang.”

The last time Taiwan set up a representative office in a European country was the representative office in Slovakia 18 years ago.

“Taiwan Representative Office” established

Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Ou Jiang’an told Taiwan media on the 18th that Taiwan’s first representative in Lithuania will be the current Taiwan representative in Latvia Huang Junyao. Ou Jiangan said that the two sides have huge potential for cooperation in various industries such as semiconductors, lasers, and financial technology.
