China Warns Slovakia, Czech of Attacks During Taiwan’s PM Visit

China on Friday warned Slovakia and the Czech Republic that none of them should harbour any illusions about the necessary measures China will take to defend its sovereignty, ahead of a visit to both countries next week by Taiwan’s foreign minister.

Beijing, which claims democratically-ruled Taiwan as its own territory, is always provoked by visits of senior Taiwanese officials to other countries, viewing it as covert support for the island’s claims to be a state.

Meanwhile, Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu will be in Slovakia and the Czech Republic next week for a forum in Slovakia organised by a local think tank, and then go to Prague to meet the Czech parliament upper house speaker, Milos Vystrcil, and Prague Mayor Zdenek Hrib.
