Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi On August 5, she left Japan on a US government special flight. This was reported on August 6 by the Nikkei newspaper.
Japan turned out to be the final point of Pelosi’s Asian tour, the “peak” of which was a visit to Taiwan, which provoked a radical aggravation of relations between the United States and China, as well as the start of an unprecedented-scale live-fire exercise of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in six waters around Taiwan. In addition to Japan and Taiwan, the 82-year-old politician has visited Singapore, Malaysia and South Korea.
In Japan, Pelosi discussed with the Prime Minister Fumio Kishidoi the situation around Ukraine and in the Taiwan Strait, as well as the nuclear missile program of the DPRK. Pelosi also met with her counterpart from the Japanese Parliament Hiroyuki Hosoda.
