Nancy Pelosi in Taipei: Amidst Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China’s Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng summoned US Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns. The ambassador was summoned to protest against the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan. China insisted that the nature of Nancy’s visit was very vicious and the consequences would be very dire. Xie said that the Chinese side will not sit comfortably. America will have to pay the price for its mistake.
According to the Global Times, Xie said that China will give a necessary and strong response and “we will show what we are saying”. He said the US government should have stopped Pelosi’s dishonest move but did not do so, which would escalate tensions in the Taiwan Strait and seriously damage Sino-US relations.
According to Xinhua, Xie told Burns, “Taiwan belongs to China, and Taiwan will eventually return to the embrace of the motherland. The Chinese people are not afraid of ghosts, pressure, and evil.”
Chinese military planes took off in Taiwanese territory
Let us tell you that soon after Nancy Pelosi reached Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, the Chinese army has become active. Taiwan’s defense ministry said more than 21 Chinese military aircraft took off over the island’s air defense detection area on Tuesday. China’s military said it was on “high alert” and would launch “a series of targeted military actions” in response to Pelosi’s visit. The Chinese military announced plans for a series of military exercises in the waters around Taiwan starting Wednesday.
China considers Taiwan as its part
Significantly, China considers Taiwan as part of its mainland and has been opposing the visit of any foreign personality to Taiwan. Beijing claims that it follows the One China Policy and insists that the rest of the countries follow it.
