We want peace to prevail in Taiwan. “China can’t stop me from traveling to Taiwan,” he said. It will not dictate my journey. He said the US-Taiwan friendship is strong, it is bipartisan, and the House and Senate have overwhelming support for peace and the status quo in Taiwan.
There should be talks between two big countries
Nancy Pelosi said that talks are going on between the President of America and China. There should be talks between two such big countries. He said that if we do not talk about human rights in China because of commercial interests, then we lose all moral right to talk about human rights anywhere in the world.

He said there was an urgent need to stop the missile launch.
