The plane of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi left Japan – the last country she visited as part of her Asian tour. This is reported by the Nikkei newspaper.
In Japan, Pelosi held a meeting with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. They discussed the situation around Ukraine and North Korea and spoke in support of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. In Tokyo, Pelosi met with reporters and said that Washington would not allow Taiwan to be isolated.
As part of the Asian tour, Pelosi also visited Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and South Korea. The most striking was the visit to Taiwan – it led to the beginning of a new crisis in relations between the United States and China.
