On Wednesday morning, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi described Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the region as an “open political provocation that threatens the sovereignty of the Asian country.”

“This proves once again that some US politicians have become the ‘rioters’ of Sino-US relations and that the United States has become the number one ‘ spoiler’ for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait,” Wang said in a statement.

The Chinese diplomat urged Washington not to stand in the way of China’s reunification, development and revitalization. He accused Washington of “playing the geopolitical game”.

Wang also stressed that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.

The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, China’s legislature, was another Chinese government body to protest Pelosi’s visit to the region. “The Taiwan issue is about China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and there is no room for China to make concessions or concessions,” a SCO spokesman said.

Chinese Ambassador to the United States Qin Gang described Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan as “reckless and provocative.”. He made these statements during an interview with the American television network CNN. “The parliamentarian’s visit sends a very wrong signal to the separatist forces on ‘Taiwan independence’,” he said.

“It is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communiques. It represents a severe blow to the political foundation of China-US relations and seriously violates China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Qin Gang said.
