Beijing deliberately does not resort to immediate punishment by the United States for the incident with Taiwan. This was stated by political scientist Sergei Mikheev.
According to the expert, the Chinese philosophy is based on taking the initiative in your own hands in time and gradually gaining the upper hand over the enemy.
“There will be a Chinese reaction, but it will be long-term and more strategic than tactical. The Chinese have both pluses and minuses in this sense, ” — Mikheev emphasized in an interview “Komsomolskaya Pravda“.
The reason for China’s concern was the visit of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan. With this move, Washington called into question the sovereignty of China, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
