House Speaker Pelosi: Taiwan’s solidarity is more important than ever while respecting the One China policy

In spite of China’s warnings against visiting Taiwan, Nancy Pelosi, the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, flew into Taiwan on a passenger jet Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking American official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.

During her speech at the Taiwanese Parliament on Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, said that 43 years ago the United States had made a promise to always stand by Taiwan.

There is no doubt that Taiwan is a flourishing democracy. In spite of the challenges it faces, the country has proven to the world that hope, courage, and determination can lead to a peaceful and prosperous future, no matter what challenges it faces.

There is no doubt that America’s solidarity with Taiwan is crucial right now, and that is the message we bring in today,” she said. During an event with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, she was giving a speech.

Despite weeks of uncertainty, Pelosi arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday aboard an Air Force passenger plane, becoming the highest-ranking American official to visit the self-governing island in the past 25 years. In retaliation, China announced military maneuvers, to which Taiwan’s military responded that it has a complete understanding of the air and naval activities near the country and that it is capable of taking action to defend its national security if necessary.

As a result of Pelosi’s visit, tensions between China and the United States rose because China claims Taiwan as part of its territory, and views the visit of foreign government officials as recognition of Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Biden administration officials and House Speaker Pelosi have stated that the United States remains committed to the so-called one-China policy, which recognizes Beijing but allows informal relations with Taipei.
