Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, held a press conference in Japan this morning on the final leg of her Asian tour. “We have stated from the beginning that the goal of our delegation is not to change the status quo in the region or Taiwan,” Pelosi said.Nancy pelosi’s visit, said in a news conference, “don’t allow China to isolate Taiwan” in the United States, China is likely to stop Taiwan to participate in various international organizations, or to visit other countries, “but can’t stop us by visit to isolate Taiwan”, she also stressed that “we have a bipartisan senate spring high-level visits, and continue to visit,We will not let them isolate Taiwan.She also reiterated that the Taiwan-US relationship is based on legislative principles such as the Taiwan Relations Act to keep peace across the Taiwan Strait and maintain the status quo.In a breakfast meeting WITH Japanese Prime Minister Fumio KishIDA THIS MORNING, THE TWO SIDES CONFIRMED THAT “THE United States AND Japan will work CLOSELY together to maintain peace and stability across THE Taiwan Strait.”During the meeting, Kishida mentioned that China had fired multiple ballistic missiles during military exercises around Taiwan, and that Tokyo believes five of them landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).In response, Mr. Kishida said, according to Agence France-Presse, that China’s missile launch poses a serious problem and has an impact on our national security and the safety of our citizens.Kishida also told Pelosi that we have asked (China) to immediately cancel the drills.In addition, Ms. Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has created some uncertainty about the Biden administration’s China policy, which has been based on strategic ambiguity over Taiwan.With Beijing claiming Taiwan as part of China, Taiwan saying it is independent, and the United States saying Taiwan is not independent but treating it as an ally, none of the three has acted aggressively on their claims, and maintaining this fragile balance seems like the least bad option.But Ms. Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has laid bare the contradictions behind the arrangement, a fragile balance that has become strained.The crisis complicates Mr. Biden’s situation as China brims over the visit of Ms. Pelosi, the most senior American official to visit Taiwan in 25 years, and relations with the United States are already at an all-time low.And the US is preoccupied with the war with Ukraine, raising the risk that it will be drawn into a conflict with another great power.It does not help that disagreements within the US administration have made Taiwan look like part of a turf war in Washington.Ms. Pelosi, a Democrat and longtime China hawk, was cheered by powerful Republicans in Congress, who agreed that the visit was a rare show of unity at a time when China’s threat to Taiwan was growing.
