The Kremlin warned the United States on Tuesday that a planned visit to Taiwan by US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi would put it on a collision course with China and cause tension in the region.
“We can’t say for sure at the moment whether she will make it or not, but everything about this tour and the possible visit to Taiwan is purely provocative,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitri told reporters. Peskov.
China has repeatedly warned Pelosi against traveling to Taiwan, which it claims is its own. Beijing has said a visit by Pelosi would contravene the one-China principle that Washington has pledged to uphold.
