(Reuters) – China has downgraded its diplomatic relations with Lithuania, the country’s foreign ministry said on Sunday.
The ministry said in a statement that the country decided to take the move after Lithuania allowed Taiwan to set up a representative office in that country earlier this month.
China on Sunday expressed “strong dissatisfaction” over Lithuania’s move, according to the statement.
