Air India's Taiwan name change not related to ‘One China’ policy: Indian reports

Taipei: An Indian official source on July 7 told Indian media that the name change made by Air India about Taiwan did not relate to the "One China" policy and that it was in alignment with international practices, reported the Times of India.

As of July 5, local news reported that Air India had followed 33 other airlines to change Taiwan's name on its official business website to "Chinese Taipei." The action by the Indian national airline has sparked protest from both Taiwanese nationals and the government.

Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) promptly requested the proper name to be restored and urged other countries to resist any intervention from China over Taiwan's sovereignty issue.
