What has Nancy Pelosi achieved with her visit to Taiwan? | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “What has Nancy Pelosi achieved with her visit to Taiwan? | DW News” – below is their description.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Pelosi was “seriously interfering in China’s internal affairs and seriously undermining China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” with her visit to Taiwan this week. Beijing said Pelosi had disregarded China’s concerns and resolute opposition to her visit to the self-ruled island, which China claims as its own. The ministry said China would “impose sanctions on Pelosi and her immediate family,” without giving further details. China also said it was canceling or suspending dialogue with the US on a range of issues — from climate change to military relations and anti-drug efforts — in retaliation for Pelosi’s trip.

“We believe that this is fundamentally irresponsible,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said in response to the suspension of cooperation on climate change. “They think they’re punishing us by shutting down this channel,” Kirby said. “They’re actually punishing the whole world because the climate crisis doesn’t recognize geographic boundaries and borders.”

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
