BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan – What she said

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi’s plane landed in Taiwan despite strong military warnings from China, in a highly symbolic move by the US.

With this move, the United States shows that it is not willing to back down in any way in the face of China’s efforts against them, and that it ignores completely any military threat it receives.

We remind you that China had clearly threatened even with military measures if Nancy Pelosi’s plane landed in Taiwan. Immediately after her landing, Pelosi also proceeded to make statements via Twitter saying:

“Our Congressional delegation’s visit to Taiwan honors America’s unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan’s vibrant Democracy.

Our visit is part of our broader trip to the Indo-Pacific — including Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan — focused on mutual security, economic partnership and democratic governance.  Our discussions with Taiwan leadership will focus on reaffirming our support for our partner and on promoting our shared interests, including advancing a free and open Indo-Pacific region.  America’s solidarity with the 23 million people of Taiwan is more important today than ever, as the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy.

Our visit is one of several Congressional delegations to Taiwan – and it in no way contradicts longstanding United States policy, guided by the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, U.S.-China Joint Communiques and the Six Assurances.  The United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo,” Pelosi’s statement concluded.
