Pelosi’s visit escalates tensions between China and the US
Pelosi and her delegation, who arrived in a US Air Force plane, were received at Taipei Airport by Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu. As Taiwanese media reported on Pelosi’s arrival on the island, China’s official social media reported a massive military move towards the Taiwan Strait. Tensions between China and the US have increased due to Pelosi’s visit. China has been claiming that Taiwan is part of it. It opposes visits by foreign officials to Taiwan because it feels it tantamounts to recognizing the island territory as sovereign. China has threatened to face “serious consequences” if Pelosi travels to Taiwan. (from input language)
