Sino-US face-off on Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan

WASHINGTON/BEIJING, August 2 (H.S.). China and the US have come face-to-face over the visit of US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan. China has threatened America with unexpected consequences, while America has warned China that Nancy has every right to go to Taiwan.

US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on a visit to Asian countries and has reached Singapore. Pelosi, who left Washington in a military plane C-40C, is expected to reach Taiwan from Singapore. She will also visit Malaysia, South Korea and Japan. It is believed that she will stay in Taiwan for a day and meet with high officials. The people of Taiwan whom Pelosi wants to meet have been informed. Strong arrangements have been made for their security in Taiwan. A US defense ship stationed near Taiwan is preparing to land Pelosi’s plane safely in Taiwan.

China is opposing Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. In fact, China considers Taiwan its self-governing territory and does not want Pelosi to go there. Pelosi will be the first top US official to visit Taiwan in 25 years. On this, the President of China himself has raised objections by calling US President Joe Biden last week. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin has said that he is again warning the US that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will not sit quietly if Pelosi reaches Taiwan. China has sent a strong protest letter to America in this regard. He said that if America continues on the wrong path, we will take strong measures for the sake of our sovereignty and security. Meanwhile, US National Security Coordinator John Kirby has also warned China. He said that the decision to go on a visit to Taiwan rests with the Speaker of the House of Representatives. America will not tolerate any comment on this. They have every right to go to Taiwan.
