China halts Lithuania beef, dairy and beer imports amid Taiwan row

China has stopped buying beef, dairy products and beer from Lithuania, authorities say, as a row deepens over the Baltic state’s ties with Taiwan.

China’s General Administration of Customs suspended the exports citing a “lack of documentation”, a Lithuanian agency said in a statement.

The move comes after Lithuania let Taiwan open a de facto embassy there.

It may bolster a European Union case against China alleging discriminatory practices towards a member state.
