US Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived Taiwan on Tuesday night, becoming a high -ranking American official to visit the island that was ordered by China in 25 years.
Pelosi’s visit has caused an increase in tensions between China and the United States. China states that Taiwan as part of its territory will be attached by force if necessary, and visits to foreign government officials in recognition of the sovereignty of the island.
China had warned about “resolved and strong measures” if Pelosi continued with the trip. The Biden administration did not explicitly urged her to cancel, while sought to assure Beijing that it would not indicate any change in American policy about Taiwan.
