Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev in an interview “RIA News” said US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan was a “malicious provocation.” He added that the United States faces “serious consequences on a global scale” after Ms. Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
“This trip is a clear and completely malicious provocation that undermines international security in Asia. A trick of the American authorities, who are completely pissed off from their own impunity,” Mr. Medvedev commented on the visit of Nancy Pelosi. According to the chairman of the Security Council, the United States is going to support Taiwan in order to create an independent state, while verbally continuing to advocate the “principle of one China.”
Because of such a policy, according to the deputy chairman of the Security Council, the Americans “will receive much more serious consequences on a global scale.” “Security in Asia will deteriorate dramatically. The distrust will be enormous. Markets will continue to fall. Gasoline and groceries will rise in price. And then no one will be able to guarantee that the next letter flight with some restless old woman will reach the chosen point,” Mr. Medvedev said.
The Kremlin also called Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan a “provocation.”
On August 2, Mrs. Pelosi arrived in Taiwan, where she met with the head of the republic, Tsai Ing-wen. She stated that the US supports Taiwan and considers it one of the most “bright” democracies. Today, August 4, China began military exercises in the province. In response, Taiwan announced its own live-fire exercises.
