Pelosi Tells Tsai Visit Shows US Won't Abandon Taiwan
  • US House speaker visits Taiwan despite warnings from China
  • Pelosi meets President Tsai, praises one of world’s “freest societies”
  • “America stands with Taiwan,” Pelosi says
  • China plans military drills, restricts some Taiwan imports
In a new statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has laid the blame on rising tensions clearly with the US.
“The Taiwan question is the most important and most sensitive issue at the very heart of China-U.S. relations. The Taiwan Strait is facing a new round of tensions and severe challenges, and the fundamental cause is the repeated moves by the Taiwan authorities and the United States to change the status quo.”
