After Taiwan visit: sanctions against EU minister
For the first time, Beijing has imposed sanctions on a single EU politician, Lithuanian Deputy Minister of Transport and Communications Agnė Vaiciukevičiūtė. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Vaiciukevičiūtė trampled on the "one China principle" by visiting Taiwan, interfered in China's internal affairs and undermined China's sovereignty and territorial integrity. The ministry did not provide further details on the form of the sanctions.
