China Objects To India's Growing Ties With Taiwan

China Objects To India's Growing Ties With Taiwan

Taiwan has dismissed China's objections over a recent exchange of messages between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Taiwanese President Lai Ching-te, calling Beijing's reaction "unreasonable interference." Deputy Foreign Minister of Taiwan, Tien Chung-kwang, remarked, "I think Modi ji will not be intimidated."

He explained that Lai Ching-te congratulated PM Modi on becoming the Prime Minister for the third time, to which Modi responded. "This is a very common thing to congratulate each other. Why do other people have something to say about it? I don't understand. This is a very unreasonable interference between two leaders congratulating each other," Tien stated.

On June 5, Lai congratulated PM Modi on the National Democratic Alliance's victory in the Lok Sabha elections, expressing Taiwan's eagerness to enhance their "fast-growing" bilateral ties. "My sincere congratulations to Prime Minister @narendramodi on his election victory. We look forward to enhancing the fast-growing #Taiwan-#India partnership, expanding our collaboration on trade, technology & other sectors to contribute to peace & prosperity in the #IndoPacific," Lai posted on X.

PM Modi responded by thanking Lai for his "warm message," stating, "I look forward to closer ties as we work towards mutually beneficial economic and technological partnership."

The following day, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning addressed the media in Beijing, stating that China had protested to India regarding the exchange. Mao asserted that there is "no such thing as 'President' of the Taiwan region."

China views Taiwan as a breakaway province and maintains it should be unified with the mainland, by force if necessary. Taiwan, however, regards itself as a distinct entity from China.

"China opposes all forms of official interactions between the Taiwan authorities and countries having diplomatic relations with China. There is but one China in the world. Taiwan is an inalienable part of the territory of the People's Republic of China," Mao emphasized.
