Since last July (2021) Lithuania officially announced that Taiwan would set up a "Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania" in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, the conflict between Lithuania and China has intensified in the second half of 2021. In fact, there were signs of deterioration in the relationship between the two countries before the "location" took place. In 2019, the two countries had a dispute with the Chinese embassy in Lithuania over the support of the Chinese people in Lithuania.
Then, with the conclusion of the National Election in October 2020, Lithuania's new coalition government's strong stance towards Shadow Making China turned into a development of deteriorating bilateral relations. The middle of 2021 will be a major turning point in Li-China relations. First, Lithuania announced its withdrawal from the China-EU "17+1" mechanism in June. After that, in July, the Republic of China agreed to allow Taiwan to set up a branch in its capital under the name of Taiwan. Subsequently, China and Lithuania recalled their ambassadors to protest, and the relationship between the two countries took a sharp turn for the worse. However, this is not the lowest point in the relationship between the two countries in 2021. At the end of November, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Lithuania's diplomatic relations had been downgraded from ambassador level to charge d'affaires level.
Furthermore, on December 15, according to a report by Reuters, Liguo announced the withdrawal of all diplomatic personnel from the embassy in Beijing. In addition to the Lithuanian government's actual act of "anti-China and supporting Taiwan", many important political figures of the founding country have also expressed solidarity with Taiwan. The Lithuanian National Television and Radio Show (LRT) reported on December 28 last year, citing a poll that pointed out: "The approval rating of the Lithuanian government has hit a 10-year low." The report quoted the Lithuanian polling agency. Poll produced by "Vilmorous" fro
