The Financial Times is reporting that Taiwan’s National Security Council (NSC) Secretary General David Lee (李大維)) says the government is seeking to urge the public to boycott airlines that altered Taiwan’s designation on their websites.

According to the UK newspaper, Lee says the government will make it clear that the public can choose not to fly on airlines that have caved in to pressure from Beijing to change the island’s designation to “Taiwan, China” on their websites.

The Financial Times is quoting the former Taiwan foreign minister as saying other measures could include taking legal action against companies that now describe Taiwan as part of China.

The report also quotes American Institute in Taiwan Chairman James Moriarty as saying Beijing is using unfortunate interference in commercial matters to prove a political point that at its core is not accurate, as Taiwan is not a province of the People’s Republic of China.    [FULL  STORY]
