US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan and underlined her nation’s unshakeable commitment to assisting Taiwan’s democracy. She is presumed to have become president after Kamala D Harris.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Pakistani foreign ministry stated that Pakistan “is deeply concerned over the evolving situation in the Taiwan Strait, which has serious implications for regional peace & stability.” Pakistan also stated its support for China’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

It further stated that the nation is strongly committed to the “One-China” policy and stands by it. The Pakistan Foreign Office stated that the globe is already experiencing a security crisis with destabilizing ramifications for international food and energy security while citing the situation in Eastern Europe and its repercussions.

The country further said that it “strongly believes that inter-state relations should be based on mutual respect, non-interference in domestic affairs, and peaceful resolution of conflicts by maintaining the principles of the UN charter, international law, and bilateral agreements.”

While supporting China, North Korea asserted that Taiwan is an integral part of that country and that the Taiwan problem is a matter of Chinese domestic policy. The region is facing the issue of peace and security again. This may be seen as the direct result of the United States impudent involvement in the domestic affairs of other nations. According to a statement from Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry, USA’s deliberate political and military provocations are also creating instability.

North Korea said that the US would be fully responsible for any consequences as it denounced Pelosi’s travel to Taiwan. The government-run Korean Central News Agency declared: “We passionately reject any external force’s meddling in the Taiwan issue and completely back the Chinese government’s fair attitude to courageously preserve the nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Pelosi, the first speaker of the US House of Representatives to travel to Taiwan in 25 years, will interact with lawmakers there in addition to meeting with President Tsai Ing-wen.

Beijing’s provocative activities in the Taiwan Strait are seen in the form of military aircraft incursions into Taiwan’s air defense. China not only stopped here, but it also allowed warships to navigate through the Taiwan Strait. China clearly intended to highlight its capacity to project its military might overseas and warn regional powers. Xi Jinping meant every nation to follow its one-china policy when it comes to Taiwan sovereignty.

The US has stated that this visit does not in any way go against long-standing US policy on the self-governing island. Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, according to China, was a grave breach of both the one-China principle and the terms of the joint communiqué the two nations inked.
