Nancy Pelosi meets with Taiwanese President

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi meets with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s meets with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-web as tensions with China soar.

Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has created a storm of controversy, and captivated the world’s attention.

The third highest-ranking American official is leading a Congressional delegation on a tour of the Indo-Pacific.

Pelosi has scheduled stops in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan.

But it’s the unannounced visit to Taiwan— the independently governed Island—that’s stealing the spotlight.

Word of Pelosi’s trip did not sit well with China, as Beijing views Taiwan as part of its territory.

China considers any trip by a high-ranking American official as confirmation of U.S. support for the Island’s independence.

The U.S. does not have official relations with Taiwan — also known as the Republic of China — and maintains a One China Policy.

This policy recognises the People’s Republic of China as the legitimate successor nation.

However, America has been stepping up engagement with the Island as China seeks to isolate it from global institutions.

Shortly after Pelosi touched down, the Taiwan Bureau of Foreign Trade confirmed China  suspended imports from Taiwanese companies. 

The companies produce pastries, baked goods and sweets and the suspension appears to be a retaliatory policy meant to put pressure on the island.

The Chinese military posted a propaganda video of its troops launching missiles, grabbing weapons, and taking off in fighter jets ahead of the Speaker’s visit to the region.

Back in Washington, the Pentagon’s John Kirby said Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan doesn’t violate any sovereignty issues.

In a rare move, the U.S. joined European allies in censuring Iran at the UN nuclear watchdog, citing Iran’s lack of cooperation with nuclear inspectors.
