Taiwan: Pelosi Meets President Tsai as Beijing kicks

by Kunle Awosiyan

Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi has met Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen in a visit that has been strongly criticized by China.

Pelosi, the most senior US politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years said her delegation had come to make it “unequivocally clear” that the U.S. would not “abandon” the island.

China had earlier said the U.S would “pay the price” for Ms Pelosi’s visit.

The U.S abides by the “One China” policy – a cornerstone of the two countries’ diplomatic relationship which recognises only one Chinese government – and has formal ties with Beijing and not Taiwan.
