The Chinese authorities have decided to impose sanctions on U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her immediate family because of a visit to Taiwan, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“In response to vicious and provocative actions, China decided to impose sanctions against Pelosi and her immediate family in accordance with the current legislation of the People's Republic of China,— the message says.
Pelosi visited Taiwan despite Beijing's serious concerns and seriously interfered in China's internal affairs, undermining its sovereignty and territorial integrity, violating the “one China principle” and threatening peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, the report said.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not specify what kind of sanctions would be imposed against Pelosi and her relatives.
Pelosi said earlier today that her trip to Taiwan was not about trying to change the status quo, Reuters reported. “We have said from the beginning that our presence here is not about changing the status quo in Taiwan or the region,” she said at a press conference after talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
She expressed the view that the Chinese government was not satisfied with the “strong friendship”; USA and Taiwan.
