Lithuania and China: who is in the wrong?

Lithuania is playing the victim, telling the European Union and the world the Chinese government has an official embargo on its products because of its ties with Taiwan. China on the other hand denies that it is exerting economic pressure. Who is in the wrong?
What have the World Trade Organization and the European Union done to help settle this dispute for their members? If these organisations are toothless, they should considering dissolving themselves.
Chinese businesses may choose not to buy goods from countries that are seen as supporting a stance against China’s sovereignty. Lithuania could ask Taiwan to replace Chinese purchasing power instead.
