U.S. speaker Pelosi lands in Taiwan, angering China 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan on Tuesday, a highly anticipated visit amid increasingly harsh warnings of Chinese retaliation and escalating tensions between Washington and Beijing.

In a statement, the California Democrat noted her visit was the first official trip to Taiwan by a U.S. House speaker in 25 years.

China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement minutes after she landed that condemned her visit as “a serious violation” of the one-China principle that maintains Taiwan is part of China. The statement accused the United States of emboldening separatist forces in Taiwan.

Pelosi’s visit has a severe impact on the political foundation of China-U.S. relations and seriously infringes upon China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
