Washington invites Taiwan to “Summit for Democracy”, angers China

Washington: The Biden government on Wednesday invited Taiwan to its “Summit for Democracy” next month. This move enraged China as it regarded the democratically governed island as its territory. “Our country’s invitation to participate in the ‘Summit for Democracy’ is an affirmation of Taiwan’s efforts to promote the values of democracy and human rights over the years,” the Taiwan ministry added. China’s Foreign Ministry vehemently opposed the idea of inviting Taiwan.
