  • Taiwan being renamed to Chinese Taipei by airlines

Earlier on Saturday, Taiwan's Defense Ministry said the ships were moving in a northeastern direction, adding that the situation was in accordance with regulations.

Taiwan issued a statement through the Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre (TECC) in India soon after the external affairs ministry defended Air India's decision as "entirely consistent with global norms and our own position with regard to Taiwan since 1949".

The foreign ministry justified its advice to Air India to change the name of Taiwan as being consistent with worldwide norms and Indian policy.

"We will continue to follow developments in this case to defend Taiwan's sovereignty", Lee said.

Air India is the latest airline to bow to pressure from Beijing to distance itself from the island.

Writing on Twitter, he added: "Huge honour to be appointed Foreign Secretary at this critical moment in our country's history". Mr Davis said it was a "pity" that the Foreign Secretary had quit.

While dozens of foreign-based carriers, including British Airways and Air Canada, have edited their websites to list Taiwan as Chinese territory, several USA companies such as American, Delta, and United, say they are consulting with the Trump administration on the issue. Code sharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence.

Under its "One China" policy, Beijing considers Taiwan a province and opposes ties between Taipei and other capitals. These airlines were sent a warning letter send from The Civil Aviation Authority Of China on April 25, 2018. Had Air India not complied with China's request, the government would likely have forbidden Air India from operating at all in the region.

The spokesperson said: "There was a mail to the regional manager in Hong Kong from China Registry, MEA, Government of India, wherein they have approved the nomenclatures to be used by Air India on its website with respect to Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region) of China, Macau SAR of China and Chinese Taipei".

Yesterday's decision comes as the government has gone the extra mile to make nice with China in the past few months, raising questions about whether India had compromised its traditional positions. And while the United States has discounted warnings from China and called it "Orwellian nonsense", neither India nor Japan have commented on the matter.

"The ministry once again calls on the worldwide community to stand up to the Chinese government's abuse of political power and its peremptory measures with inappropriate intentions to meddle in the independent operations of enterprises in various countries", Lee said, Taipei Times reported.
