Nancy Pelosi Taiwan Visit: Angered by the visit of US Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi, China said that the US will have to face the consequences. Meanwhile, news agency AFP quoted the Taiwanese army as saying that 21 Chinese military aircraft entered the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). It is being told that during this time China had deployed its KJ500 AWACS aircraft and JF16, JF11, Y9 EW and Y8 ELINT aircraft.
Earlier, as soon as the Taiwanese media informed about Pelosi’s arrival in Taipei, China’s official social media informed about the massive army’s move towards the Taiwan Strait.
Responding to reports of Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in Beijing, “We are closely monitoring Pelosi’s schedule and will give a strong response if she visits Taiwan.” Another spokesman said the US would be responsible for undermining China’s sovereignty, security and interests and that it would have to pay the price.
China has been regularly opposing the visit of a foreign personality to Taiwan. He claims that he follows the One China policy and insists that the rest of the country follow it. It believes that Taiwan is part of the mainland.
