China rejects US request for talks on airline website row

Updated : June 28, 2018 11:46 AM IST

China has rejected US requests for talks over how American airlines and their websites refer to Chinese-claimed Taiwan, according to sources, including a US official, adding to tensions in a bilateral relationship already frayed by a major trade dispute.
China has demanded that foreign firms, and airlines in particular, begin referring to Taiwan as Chinese territory on their websites, along with Hong Kong and Macau, a move described by the White House in May as "Orwellian nonsense".
Numerous non-US carriers, such as Air Canada, Lufthansa and British Airways have already made changes to their websites, according to Reuters checks.
