CNN: China may close airspace over Taiwan to disrupt Pelosi's visit


Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi is expected to visit Taiwan in August. Meanwhile, as CNN points out, China may take a number of demonstrative measures ahead of this visit.


So, Beijing may well establish a no-fly zone over the rebellious island and thus close the airspace to prevent the arrival of Pelosi. Similar concerns were expressed in an interview with CNN by one of the representatives of the White House.

The US presidential administration also suggested the possibility of sending Chinese fighter jets to Taiwan, after which a certain reaction from Washington and Taipei would follow.

At the same time, during a briefing on July 19, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian demanded that the United States cancel Pelosi's visit to Taiwan because such actions by the Americans violate the principle of China's territorial integrity.

Along with this, Beijing demands that Washington stop any contacts at a high political level with Taipei and not create a tense situation in the Taiwan Strait. Otherwise, the PRC will have the right to take appropriate measures to protect state sovereignty and ensure security.

    Maybe he can, but who will let him? China will beware of aggravating relations with the United States. And then the money will be seized ...

      The United States, in any case, one "fine" day will seize China's money.
      War between the US and China is inevitable!
      China should be getting ready for Washington to seize its money!

      As for the old militaristic gagool 82-year-old Nancy Palusi, a place in a madhouse has been crying for her for a long time - she is waiting for her, she will not wait!
      But, apparently, only the grave will correct the "humpbacked" Nancy Palusi!

    China has long needed to show whose Taiwan and to whom it belongs, how much you can think and fear - no matter what happens, because you can lose it forever.

    Lately, it seems that the US is REALLY wanting to escalate in Taiwan, doing everything possible to achieve this.
    China is kicking as hard as it can.
    With one hand, the states remove all options except escalation, and with the other they "warn" the world about the "evil Chinese."

    Maybe I'm wrong, but that's how it was with SVO.

    Almost the entire world, including the UN and the US, recognizes Taiwan as part of China, and therefore China can impose any restrictions in its province, incl. establish a no-fly zone. The only question is whether it is worth taking such a step in connection with the arrival of Aunt Pelosi in Taiwan.
