China might impose "US-style sanctions" on Lithuania, the Global Times writes, mentioning the American restrictions for Chinese telecommunications company Huawei as an example.

"China has the right to ban any company from selling products using Chinese components or technologies to Lithuania, and vice versa, foreign businesses could also be prohibited from selling products containing raw materials and components from Lithuania to China," it writes.

China is angered by Lithuania's deepening ties with Taiwan and the opening of the latter's representative office in Vilnius.
