China Warns US Will Pay the Price For Pelosi Landing In Taiwan

Despite stern warnings from the Chinese government that the US will meet with disastrous results if it makes any diplomatic trips to the island, Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan today.

Tuesday evening at about 10:45 local time, Air Force One landed.

The US’s act of disobedience has infuriated the Chinese government, which last week issued some shocking warnings about shooting down Pelosi’s plane if she tried to visit.

On Monday, Zhao Lijan, a spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, underlined the caution. If she insists on going, there will be dire repercussions, he warned.

“We are fully prepared for any eventuality. The People’s Liberation Army [PLA] will never sit by idly. China will take strong and resolute measures to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

The communist country that ruled Taiwan after World War II ended in 1945 Although the island nation has a tiny military and democratically elected leaders, its legal standing with regard to China is still hazy and uncertain.

China has been reasserting its control of the island in recent years. A national security statute was introduced in Hong Kong last year, making it simpler for Beijing to prosecute protestors or work with foreign forces.

Therefore, any US acknowledgment of Taiwan’s independence is viewed as a danger to the Chinese dynasty by Chinese officials.

Chinese tanks may be seen on the Fujian coast of the Taiwan Strait in shocking video that has been shared on social media. In other films, the military’s presence and equipment are visible in Xiamen.

President Xi Jinping issued another stern warning to Biden earlier today, repeating that Pelosi’s risk-taking would have serious consequences and that American meddling in Taiwan would not be beneficial.

When Pelosi’s plane touched down in Taiwan earlier today, she was given a warm greeting by the local authorities. TAIPEI 101, the highest structure on the island, was lit up with a welcoming message for the speaker.

But a lot of people have called her action dangerous and claimed that it would only lead to an increase in tensions between Taiwan and China.
