Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Czech Senate chair Milos Vystrcil should pay a high price for visiting Taiwan and for his “shortsighted behaviour”, Czech News Agency reported on August 31.

Vystrcil headed to Taiwan, along with a nearly 100-member delegation of businesspeople, academics and seven fellow senators. The delegation seeks to strengthen bilateral relations and trade, despite fierce protests from China and criticism from Czech President Milos Zeman.

Wang’s spokesperson Zhao Lijian added that Beijing would not "sit idly by and let go of the public provocation of the Czech Senate speaker and the anti-China forces behind him", as quoted by Euronews.    [FULL  STORY]
