The Chinese authorities have decided to impose sanctions against the speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi and her closest relatives because of a visit to Taiwan, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“In response to the vicious and provocative actions, China decided to impose sanctions against Pelosi and her closest relatives in accordance with the current legislation of the People’s Republic of China,” the report says.

Pelosi visited Taiwan despite Beijing’s serious concerns, and thereby interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermining its sovereignty and territorial integrity, trampling on the “one China principle” and threatening peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, the report said.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not specify what kind of sanctions will be imposed against Pelosi and her relatives.

The speaker earlier stated that her trip to Taiwan is not connected with attempts to change the status quo, writes Reuters. “We have said from the very beginning that our representation here is not related to a change in the status quo in Taiwan or in the region,” she said at a press conference after talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Pelosi also expressed the opinion that the Chinese government is dissatisfied with the “strong friendship” of the United States and Taiwan.

Taiwan (Republic of China) is a partially recognized state 100 km from the coast of China. The Territory declared its secession in 1949, but China considers it its province. The United States does not have diplomatic relations with Taiwan, but a law passed in 1979 allows Washington to supply weapons there.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi led a delegation of the US Congress visited Taiwan on August 2. The island was not mentioned in the official schedule of her visit to Asia, but CNN sources claimed that the speaker would come there. During the visit, Pelosi called the main goal of her trip to support the “vibrant and dynamic” democracy of Taiwan.

China sharply criticized the visit and began military exercises in the Taiwan Strait. After Pelosi’s departure, the CCTV TV channel, citing the Chinese military, reported that 100 aircraft, including fighter jets, and ten warships were involved in the exercises near Taiwan, and combat missiles were also launched. The exercises will last until August 7. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on August 5 called Beijing’s reaction to Pelosi’s trip unjustified, disproportionate and provocative, Reuters reported.
