The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, landed in Taiwan this Tuesday (), despite Chinese threats. China had promised to react militarily if Pelosi’s visit to the island took place.

This morning, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that “if the United States gets it wrong at the beginning”, the so-called “consequences disastrous” would be not just for Taiwan, but for “the prosperity and security of the entire world”.

“It is difficult to imagine a more reckless and provocative action,” added Hua Chunying.

The Russians agree. “Everything related to this trip and a possible visit to Taiwan, clearly, is pure provocation. It leads to an increase in tension and, as we see, all countries in the world are taking notice,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. , in a daily press conference.

Taiwan is one of the main sources of conflict between China and the United States, mainly because Washington is Taiwan’s main arms supplier and would be its biggest military ally in the event of a war with the Asian giant.

THE China, which claims sovereignty over the island, considers Taiwan a rebellious province since the Kuomintang nationalists retreated there in, after losing the civil war against the communists.
