Arrival of the plane with the President of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan is expected at 17:30. The journalists shared footage from the Sunshan airport in Taipei. The broadcast was hosted by the Taiwanese YouTube channel United Daily News (UDN).
The situation in Sunshan was calm at the time of the broadcast.
In the meantime, a video appeared on social networks, which depicted as on one of the buildings near the airport, where the plane with the representative of the American authorities was supposed to arrive, the inscription “Love. Hope. Peace” appeared.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry accused the United States of deliberately escalating the conflict. The Chinese department believes that the United States is “constantly challenging” on the Taiwan issue. Also, the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China earlier stated that the Chinese army “will not sit idly by” if Pelosi visits the island, which the Chinese authorities consider their territory.
