i wish that india had such kind of power that china enjoys now.
Imagine if the US starting incentivising Taiwanese chip manufacturers to transition to the US before the war breaks out
US and EU has been doing this for decades and centuries
Perhaps Lithuania could become one of Taiwan's newest diplomatic allies someday. I hope the rest of Europe as well as the US, Canada, India, Australia, and Japan etc. could one day follow suit.
"Weaponizing trade" that's projection of an American trait.
I say India should follow suit and open an embassy in taiwan. Show the world how brave indians can be.
Why is this news?
US has been using its economic might as a weapon for ever.
India will soon find out when the US imposes sanctions through CAATSA because India bought S-400 from Russia.
为什么会出现这个消息？,美国一直将其经济实力作为武器。,印度很快就会知道美国何时通过 CAATSA 实施制裁，因为印度从俄罗斯购买了 S-400。,
China had learned from USA & Europe how to use trade as a weapon LOL :)
中国从美国欧洲学到了如何将贸易作为武器 LOL :)
I am proud of Lithuania standing on what is right! We are enlighten to what happens to Taiwan can happen to her too.
It's not just China who can 'weaponise' trade. They will understand that sooner or later.
India should take full advantage of this.
China is a diplomatic Superpower. Over the years it used it diplomatic might to isolate Taiwan and strangle it diplomatically. China today is an economic superpower sooner or later it will use it economic might to isolate Taiwan and strangle it economically.
Honestly what did Lithuania expect china to do?simply allow them to get away with threatening China's territorial integrity and sovereignty? Lithuania got what they deserved and any nation would have done the same in China's position.
It would be equivalent to Lithuania opening up an embassy of Kashmir in thier capital if Kashmir had the same status quo as Taiwan
Lithuania transgressed, so it will pay, the cost must go up, or the other vassals might get the idea this is a game.
The United States provided Lithuania with a loan of US$600 million. Let him touch the red line of Chinese politics.
China requires all Western companies in the Chinese market not to use Lithuanian products.
A devastating blow to Lithuania.
When you want to have your influence in others people tribe politic, you have to pay.
We may call this as Chinese embargo.
Is it called sanction in United State?
trade has always been weaponized, what a stupid question ???
it has worked.
Lit says it was a mistake.
deal with it.
In States, we call it sanction, and we use it very often and everywhere. We call it coercion since it's by chinese anti sanction law, not from west. Because west believes truth is from power NOT not humanity.
Who teach China trade war. Hahah
I don't understand why media shows different head line for the same thing done by different countries like since 100 years this is done by USA, but they don't get catchy lines like that,
我不明白为什么媒体对不同国家所做的同一件事显示不同的标题，就像 100 年来美国所做的那样，但他们没有像那样吸引人的台词，
Name one country that would be okay with a foreign country supporting separatism...
