China’s anger against Lithuania: What does it mean for the EU? | DW News

A diplomatic spat between China and Lithuania has become a test case for how the European Union intends to deal with Beijing.
China has downgraded diplomatic ties with Lithuania and recalled its ambassador after Vilnius allowed Taiwan to open its de-facto embassy there.

China regards Taiwan as a breakaway province and countries that establish relations with the island, soon find themselves at the receiving end of Chinese anger.
What does this anger against Lithuania mean for larger European engagement with China and how did we get here?

Lithuania facing migration wave on Belarus border | DW News

A growing number of African and Middle Eastern migrants have been illegally entering Lithuania from Belarus. The country says it is finding it hard to cope.

Lithuania and Belarus share a 680-kilometer (423-mile) border. In many places, the two countries are separated merely by low wooden fencing or narrow ditches. Overcoming these obstacles to cross into EU territory is child’s play.

Until recently, this was not a serious problem in Lithuania. According to official figures, just 79 people entered the small Baltic state illegally in 2020 — most of them fleeing the authoritarian Lukashenko regime in neighboring Belarus.

So far this year, however, more than 2,500 people from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and several African nations have arrived in Lithuania. Most of them came in the past two months.
