MOFA protests forced name change of office in Papua New Guinea
Posted on 2018-02-14 08:25:13
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it has lodged an official protest with
the government of Papua New Guinea over its ordering Taiwan's representative
office in the country to remove the wording "Republic of China" from its
name.

Officials say the Papua New Guinea government acted under pressure from China.

Taiwan's trade office in is talks with the P-N-G government in Port Moresby
in an effort to protect its rights and interests.

And foreign office spokesman Andrew Lee says China's ongoing effort to limit
Taiwan's international space, particularly so close to the Hualien
earthquake, will only hurt the feelings of the Taiwanese people.

Taiwan's representative office in Papua New Guinea was established in 1990
and was previously called the Trade Mission of the Republic of China on
Taiwan.

According to China's foreign ministry, the mission has removed "Republic of
China" from its name while signs with the original name have been removed
along with diplomatic license plates from diplomatic vehicles.
