Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan's parliament
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan is a malicious provocation that undermines international security in Asia. About this in an interview with RIA Novosti said Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.
«This trip— clear and completely malicious provocation. An action that directly undermines international security in Asia. The trick of the American authorities, completely embittered by their own impunity,»,— said Medvedev.
According to Medvedev, the US authorities played on China's nerves. “A completely ambiguous rhetoric was used. Yes, we are for a united China, but— at the same time— we are for democracy, against autocracy, and the US will “support Taiwan in an effort to build an independent state,” — noted the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council.
Pelosi's special flight landed in Taiwan on August 2, despite Beijing's objections. After getting off the plane, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives said that the main goal of the American delegation— support for “bright and dynamic” democracy in Taiwan. On August 3, the politician left the country.
In response to the visit, China launched large-scale military exercises in Taiwan waters. The Chinese Foreign Ministry strongly protested and said that Pelosi's trip “greatly affected the political foundation of China-US relations, violated China's national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and seriously undermined the stability of the Taiwan Strait.”
The Kremlin considered Pelosi's trip provocative and leading to increased tensions.
