Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that China’s military exercises near Taiwan were provoked by a visit to the island by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi. According to him, these exercises are the sovereign right of the PRC.
“Tension (between China and Taiwan.— “b”) is artificially provoked by whom. Completely unnecessary visit and provocation. As for the maneuvers, this is China’s business,” Peskov told reporters.
Ms. Pelosi visited Taiwan on August 2. On August 4, Chinese military exercises began near the island, as Beijing opposes US support for Taipei. Taiwan has promised to respond to China’s aggressive actions and also conduct exercises.
