The PRC admits the possibility of “an attempt to make a surprise visit” by Pelosi to Taiwan during her trip to Asia, noting that no matter what happens, “China will be on high alert to be fully prepared for a military conflict.”
The Chinese believe that Pelosi wants to “take a risky and dangerous step” by trying to land in Taiwan under the pretext of a plane malfunction or refueling.
Analysts said that if Pelosi’s plane does have problems, the Chinese army can provide protection for the aircraft and allow it to land in China.
REFERENCE. The Republic of China (Taiwan) is a state recognized by 17 countries, Ukraine de jure considers it a part of the PRC. Before being defeated by the communist regime of Mao Zedong in the civil war, it controlled the entire territory of China. Since 1949, it has controlled only Taiwan and a few small islands. The PRC considers Taiwan its province and declares its desire for “peaceful reunification.” Taiwan says it is ready to offer armed resistance if invaded.
President of the U.S.A Joe Biden declared in May that Washington engages the armyif China tries to take over Taiwan by force. “We support the One China policy, but that doesn’t mean that China has, excuse me, jurisdiction to use force to seize Taiwan,” he explained Washington’s position.
