Czech senate speaker 'crossed a red line' by visiting Taiwan - China

BERLIN, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Czech senate speaker Milos Vystrcil “crossed a red line” when he made an official visit to Taiwan, senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi said on Tuesday during a news conference with his German counterpart.

Vystrcil said his visit to Taiwan, which China considers a breakaway province ineligible for state-to-state relations, was to promote business links and that the Czech Republic would not bow to Beijing’s objections. (Reporting by Joseph Nasr Editing by Michael Nienaber)
