Recall that on August 2, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi arrived on a visit to the island of Taiwan.

China has statedthat he would respond with “strong measures” if Pelosi went to Taiwan, and also noted that he “strongly objects” to a possible visit.

On the eve of the visit, Beijing warned of “egregious political consequences.” Chinese officials also said the nation “will not sit idly by” if the PRC feels its “sovereignty and territorial integrity” are under threat.

The American side has not officially confirmed Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Her Asian tour includes visits to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore, some of which have already taken place.

Pelosi has already landed in Taipei and became the first senior American politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
