The 109th Taiwan National Day in India was a noticeable one. There were posters and flags hung outside the Chinese embassy by a ruling party member. Taiwan’s president thanked her dear Indian friends for sending wishes on their annual celebration.

The awareness of the national day is heightened after the Chinese embassy issued a letter to the Indian media with instructions not to use certain terms. According to the embassy, these terms will violate the One China policy. However, India’s Ministry of External Affairs dismissed the instructions, by stating that the free Indian media would report as it sees fit.

India and China are currently locked in a military stand-off in eastern Ladakh since May this year. Both sides are still talking. But the negotiations are staled with China unwilling to return to its side of the Line of Actual Control.

Indian journalists posting about Taiwan on their social media accounts have received private messages from the Chinese embassy on Saturday, 10th October 2020. The message read that the Chinese embassy has noticed their tweet on Taiwan. They asked them to stick to the Indian government’s position on Taiwan’s question. And they also asked them to not violate the One-China principle when they report. The embassy further added that they are willing to maintain communication with the journalists and other Indian media organizations on China-related reports.

One of China’s state-run English language tabloid also published an article that said that the posters hung outside the embassy will only heighten the already soured China-India ties. The article in the tabloid also called on India’s ruling party to give up its irrational behavior and to realize that it is playing with fire.
