China warns Czech senate speaker will pay 'heavy price' for Taiwan visit

Source: CNBC

Czech Senate speaker Milos Vystrcil will “pay a heavy price” for making an official trip to Taiwan and China will not sit idly by, the Chinese government’s top diplomat said on Monday, in a warning brushed off by Taiwan’s government.

Vystrcil arrived in Taipei on Sunday on a visit to promote business links with Taiwan, saying the Czech Republic would not bow to Beijing’s objections.

“The Chinese government and Chinese people won’t take a laissez-faire attitude or sit idly by, and will make him pay a heavy price for his short-sighted behaviour and political opportunism,” China’s Foreign Ministry cited Wang as saying.

Speaking in Taipei, Taiwan Economics Minister Wang Mei-hua brushed off the criticism, though declined direct comment on China’s attack on Vystrcil.

“The Czech Republic and Taiwan are free and democratic countries which put great store on human rights. We have the same values as the Czechs,” she told reporters, speaking before a joint business forum.

It is time to bring Taiwan out of the shadows andit is just wrong that China is bullying countries into not recognizing them.

1. Chinese "diplomacy" seems little more than tantrums and bullying.

3. Sounds like current American diplomacy, though probably less illegal.

6. Does anyone really believe Taiwan is a breakaway province of the PRC?

Interesting note, the Japanese surrender documents gave Formosa to the ROC, after the PRC won the civil war the ROC government fled to Formosa which is now Taiwan.
