US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to visit Japan early next month, Kyodo News reported Wednesday, citing diplomatic sources it didn’t name, for a trip that might coincide with a possible stop in Taiwan that has raised China’s ire.

Beijing has vowed to take a “resolute and strong” response to a Taiwan stop. It has been warning Pelosi not to be the first sitting speaker since Newt Gingrich to visit the self-governing island, which it considers part of its territory.
