Chinese President Xi Jinping changed plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the SCO summit in September. The Wall Street Journal reports citing sources. According to the interlocutors of the publication, this happened due to the visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan.

Preparations are underway for Chinese leader Xi Jinping to travel to Central Asia to meet with Russian leader Vladimir Putin and other leaders at a regional summit in mid-September. The tentative addition of the trip to Mr. Xi’s schedule was prompted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan earlier this month, which was seen by Beijing as an escalation of Western pressure on China, according to some sources.

The SCO summit will be held in Samarkand on September 15-16. It is noted that the trip to Samarkand will highlight Xi’s goal to develop closer security cooperation with countries that are not US allies in order to create a bulwark against the West’s efforts to contain China.

Earlier, an American delegation arrived in Taiwan on an official visit, which caused dissatisfaction in China. The country’s authorities do not recognize the independence of the island. China sent a group of warships and aircraft to the shores of Taiwan. Prior to this, China began military exercises near Taiwan due to the trip of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the island. The US presidential administration was against this visit, according to “Days.ruwith reference to Bloomberg.
