The Point: Pelosi Sneaked into Taiwan

U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in the Taiwan Region

The Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned U.S. Ambassador Nicholas Burns after U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in the Taiwan region. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng called Pelosi’s trip a willful act to violate China’s redline and the China-U.S. Joint Communique, the political foundation of bilateral ties. He noted that the U.S. administration indulged rather than restrained Pelosi’s trip. China has responded with multiple statements and live-fire drills around the island. What impact will Pelosi’s sneaky visit to Taiwan have on cross-strait relations? What’s the rationale behind China’s reaction before and after she landed?
