China Has Verified Its Warnings To The US Over Pelosi's Taiwan Visit
BEIJING – China has dispatched stricter admonishments to U.S. Functionaries about Speaker Nancy Pelosi's probable visit to Taiwan a foreign ministry representative said on Monday; verifying a report by the Financial Times.
On Saturday, the FT announced that 6 persons with knowledge of the warnings “saying that they were significantly stronger than the threats that Beijing has made previously when it has been unhappy with U.S. Actions or policy on Taiwan; which is claimed by China.” according to Reuters.
The "hush-hush" discourse conveys notions of possible military action according to the Financial Times citing 6 sources close to the situation.
On Monday, Representative Zhao Lijan told reporters, “we are seriously prepared.”
As to the nature of the response, Zhao says, “If the U.S. side is bent on going its way, China will take strong measures to resolutely respond and counteract.” He also says, “The United States should be held responsible for any serious consequences,”
China has been escalating military activity in the proximity of Taiwan calling for the democratically elected government to embrace Chinese sovereignty. The government of Taiwan says that “only the island's 23 million people can decide their future.” according to Reuters. Taiwan wants peace but will safeguard itself if assaulted.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to visit Taiwan sometime in August.
Last Wednesday, US President Joe Biden said that he meant to talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping near the end of the month. Biden had some reservations about the purported trip to Taiwan and told reporters, "I think that the military thinks it's not a good idea right now, but I don't know what the status of it is,"
