  • The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Pelosi was “seriously interfering in China’s internal affairs and seriously undermining China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” with her visit to Taiwan this week.
  • It remains its most important military and political backer.
  • The government in Beijing has reacted with threats and military drills before and after Pelosi’s visit — a trip it views as unacceptable because it escalates ties between Washington and Taipei.
