Earlier in the week, the Chinese embassy sent an email to around 250 Indian journalists asking them not to refer to Taiwan as a "country" or "nation" in their coverage of Taiwan's Oct. 10 National Day events, local media outlets reported.
The incident sparked controversy on social media and prompted a response from India's Ministry of External Affairs, which reiterated that India's media is free and reports on issues as it sees fit.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, Wu wrote: "Hats off to friends from around the world this year, India in particular, for celebrating Taiwan National Day. With your support, Taiwan will definitely be more resilient in meeting challenges, especially those 'get lost' types." [FULL STORY]
