The plane with Nancy Pelosi flew out of Andrews Air Force Base – Media
Earlier there were reports that the Chinese may shoot down the plane with the U.S. House Speaker because of the situation with Taiwan.
Meanwhile, while Nancy Pelosi is flying to Asia, she has already been buried on Russian Wikipedia
Chinese authorities are furious over rumors of a possible visit of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan and have warned Washington of serious consequences if the trip takes place. Why would a visit by an influential American politician become a geopolitical issue?
Beijing considers Taiwan to be Chinese territory, although it does not formally control the island or its government. If Pelosi’s August visit to Taiwan is confirmed, she will be the highest-ranking U.S. politician to visit the island since 1997.
China’s Foreign Ministry said Pelosi’s visit would be seen as undermining China’s sovereignty, and the U.S. would be held responsible.
The U.S. State Department announced that there was no official information about Pelosi’s trip and that U.S. policy toward Taiwan remained unchanged.
Despite the lack of formal diplomatic ties, Washington maintains a “strong informal relationship” with Taiwan and provides it with military and technical assistance.
However, the U.S. does not recognize Taiwan as an independent state.
