PELOSI’S VISIT TO TAIWAN CREATED INJURY
Tensions rose between the US and China due to Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan in August.
The Beijing administration, which sees the island as a sovereign area, opposed the visit, arguing that the visit of a senior political official from the USA would be an encouraging step for the government on the island, which defends Taiwan’s independence, but despite Pelosi’s warnings, the visit he made brought the tension to a climax.
After the visit, the Chinese army started military exercises around the island, and the exercises that lasted for 7 days created a de facto blockade around the island. During exercises using real weapons and ammunition, guided missiles fired from mainland China fell into the waters near Taiwan. (AA)
