HELSINKI (AP) — Estonia’s government says it will allow Taiwan to open a nondiplomatic representative office of Taipei in the Baltic country to boost economic and cultural ties with the self-governing island. But Estonian officials pledged to stick with the “One China” policy in political relations. Estonia is a member of the European Union and NATO. Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna told local media outlets on Friday that the government revised its approach to Taiwan at a Cabinet meeting on Nov. 2 while discussing the country’s China policy. China claims Taiwan as its territory. Beijing considers Taiwan as a rebel province to be brought under its control by force if necessary.
