EFEShanghai, China

United States President Joe Biden has included Taiwan among more than 100 invitees to a Washington-led Summit for Democracy next month, enraging China on expected lines.

China reacted angrily after seeing Taiwan in the list of the countries for the virtual summit on Dec.9 and 10 that does not include Beijing, which considers the self-ruled and democratically governed island as its territory.

China's State Council Taiwan Affairs Office said: "It is a mistake" to have the island on the list published on the website of the State Department. EFE
