This was stated by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby during a briefing at the White House. He emphasized that Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan is in line with all the communiqués and, in particular, with the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act. h2>

John Kirby stressed that Pelosi's visit to Taiwan is not the first time a House Speaker has traveled to the island. Moreover, members of the congress visit Taiwan every year. The United States is doing everything necessary to ensure the safety of such visits, including the trip of Nancy Pelosi.

The Pentagon spokesman also noted that Pelosi's visit in no way changes the relationship between Washington and Beijing, and the position on Taiwan remains unchanged. p>

Also, the Pentagon spokesman stressed that the United States does not intend to enter into conflict with China. Washington spoke about this with Beijing at the highest levels, including at the level of leaders. However, the US will provide defense support to Taiwan because it wants to maintain peace and stability.

Kirby emphasized that the United States is keen to maintain dialogue, but everything will depend on how China conducts itself over the next days.

Pelosi's visit to Taiwan: the main thing

August 2, a plane with a speaker House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi landed in Taipei. She has a series of meetings scheduled for August 3 with the island's authorities.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry condemned Pelosi's visit and called it US interference in the country's “internal issues” because Beijing considers Taiwan its territory. Pelosi herself emphasized that her visit does not contradict relations with China, and now her arrival demonstrates support for the status quo of Taiwan and the fact that the United States does not support attempts to change this status unilaterally.

Then China announced the holding large-scale exercises around Taiwan – military maneuvers will be held in 6 sea areas for 3 days, for which air and sea space will be closed. Chinese journalist Hu Xijin actually announced plans to invade the island, calling the goal of the “exercises” “the reunification of China”.
