China Announces Sanctions on US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi Over her Visit to Taiwan

News - by RadioNow / Aug. 5th, 2022

China has announced sanctions on Nancy Pelosi, United States house speaker, over her visit to Taiwan. 

Ms. Pelosi landed on the island on Tuesday — the highest-ranking American politician to do so in 25 years — despite a previous warning issued by China against the visit. 

Chinese President She Szi Jinping had reportedly told US President Joe Biden before the visit that “whoever plays with fire will get burned”. 

Although the island is an independent country, China considers Taiwan part of its territory and frowns against diplomatic visits to the island  

Announcing the sanctions in a statement on Friday, the Chinese foreign ministry said Pelosi’s visit constitutes gross interference in China’s internal affairs.
