Tension between China and the United States have reached an all-time high thanks to Nancy Pelosi, who decided to visit Taiwan with an envoy from the United States Government. The House Speaker of the United States made this rash decision despite threats from the Chinese Government, who warned there would be severe consequences if she moved ahead with her plan.
In Pelosi’s views, she is doing this in order to protect democracy by acknowledging Taiwan as a sovereign nation. Although China has never recognized Taiwan as such, they consider them another Chinese province since forever. Since Pelosi’s enjoy landed, there have been a total of 21 aereal Chinese incursions into Taiwanese air space as a clear threat to the country. China is clearly not happy with this decision.
China summons American embassador.
Amid this clear provocation from the United States, the Chinese Government decided to summon the American embassador to discuss Pelosi’s visit. This is the highest level visit from the U.S. to Taiwan in the last 25 years, Pelosi is now considered a ‘trouble maker in chief’ for doing this.
People in Taiwan are divided as many cheered her arrival but just as many are afraid this event will only rise tensions between them and China. In Beijing, they consider this has been a blatant disregard of China’s policies and utter disrespect for their wishes to not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign nation. Tensions could rise even further on Wednesday but we need to analyze how high they could go.
Can Nancy Pelosi unleash World War III?
Nancy Pelosi’s actions have only mnaged to increase tensions between the Chinese and American armies. Both sides are listening to their chiefs of command in order to asses the situation even further. Although talking about World War III is still very premature, Nancy Pelosi’s actions certainly have turned this into a modern cold war between China and the United States of America. Russia support’s China’s position, obviously.
