China Vetoes Renewal of Macedonia Force

From Times Wire Reports

China vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution extending the stay of peacekeepers in Macedonia for six months, prompting criticism that it was jeopardizing Balkan peace to punish Macedonia for its ties to Taiwan. Beijing said the force wasn’t needed because the ethnic conflict in the Serbian province of Kosovo didn’t pose a true threat to Macedonia. Taiwan and Macedonia established diplomatic ties last month.
