‘Modi ji won’t be intimidated’: Taiwan’s reply as China objects to ties with India | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Taiwan on Tuesday dismissed China’s criticism of a message exchange between PM Narendra Modi and Taiwanese president Lai Ching-te as “unreasonable interference”.
Deputy foreign minister of Taiwan Tien Chung-kwang was talking about China taking objection to India looking forward to having closer ties with Taiwan.
“I am sure that Modi ji and our president won’t be intimidated by that reaction”, he said.
China had lodged protest with India over saying that “India has made serious political commitments and should resist Taiwan authorities’ political calculations”.

Calling it an “unreasonable interference”, Taiwan’s foreign minister said, “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 on the commonly used X platform.”
Newly elected Taiwanese president Lai Ching-te congratulated PM Modi on winning third term in 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Responding to this, PM Modi had said that he looked forward to having “closer ties as we work towards mutually beneficial economic and technological partnership.”
