BEIJING: China said on Thursday (Mar 4) it firmly opposes the practice of countries establishing official institutions in Taiwan, following Lithuania's decision to open a trade representation office there.

China urged Lithuania to stick to the "one China" principle, the foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters at a news briefing in Beijing.

Lithuania will open a trade representation office this year in Taiwan, which China considers a breakaway province.
