What is known about the tension between China and Taiwan
In the past few days, the situation with the independence of Taiwan, which China does not recognize, has escalated due to the intentions of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to visit the island (as is known, official Washington supports Taiwan in this conflict).
Beijing on it reacted extremely harshly. The media even discussed the fact that the Chinese were preparing to shoot down the plane carrying the congresswoman.
Officially, there were no such threats, but on the eve of the start of the speaker's Asian tour, China began large-scale military exercises near the island.
On Sunday, August 31, China launched a massive missile launch towards Taiwan. In response, Taiwan deployed an air defense system at a civilian airport.
On Monday, August 1, the Chinese Foreign Ministry reiterated that Pelosi's visit to Taiwan would have “serious consequences”, China would “certainly take strong measures” to protect sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Meanwhile, a journalist from the Taiwan State Television on her Twitter page, citing her sources, said that the speaker of the lower house of the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi, will arrive in Taiwan's capital on August 2. At the same time, Chinese state media Global Times reported that the plane carrying Pelosi may attempt to land in Taiwan under the pretext of a technical malfunction or the need to refuel.
In addition, China promised to take “tough and decisive measures if Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi visits Taiwan. The representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying, also called the possible visit of the American politician to the island “a clear US provocation”.
