US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken reacts to China’s military action against Taiwan, sanctions against Nancy Pelosi


China’s missile launches during military exercises around Taiwan are an unfair escalation, US Secretary of State Anthony Brinken said, and Beijing said it would impose sanctions on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting the island. Diplomatic ties further soured on Friday as China’s foreign ministry canceled talks between US and Chinese military leaders and announced a moratorium on bilateral talks on climate and maritime security. China’s foreign ministry said Friday it would impose sanctions on Pelosi and her immediate family in response to her “vicious” and “provocative” behavior. The foreign ministry also said it would suspend cross-border cooperation on crime prevention and anti-narcotics, as well as cooperation on repatriation of illegal immigrants. Speaking in Japan, Pelosi said a trip to Asia would never change the status quo in the region.
