Mick Wallace is currently visiting China…
In an interview with Chinese media association China Xinhua News, Wexford native Mick Wallace showed off his new tattoo.
He revealed that the tattoo is actually in Chinese and he also discussed the meaning behind the new Chinese tattoo on his wrist.
Wallace, who is a member of the European Parliament, said:
“It’s actually my first tattoo. I got it in Xi’an. I have been anti-war all of my life; I am pro-peace. For my first tattoo to say ‘no war’, I think that’s okay.”
“I’m Irish, I’m not Chinese, but I want every country to respect each other. I am not pro any government. No matter what country you go to anywhere in the world, it’s the people you love. We have really enjoyed meeting the people of China on this occasion,” he said.
Wallace has come under criticism for his comments in the same wide-ranging interview. In the interview, he stated that Tai-wan is a part of China.
