China sanctions US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over Taiwan visit


In a fresh round of escalating tensions between China and Taiwan, unspecified sanctions were announced by China on U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her visit earlier this week to Taiwan, as per reports. According to AP report citing the Chinese Foreign Ministry statement on Friday, it said that the US Hourse Speaker had disregarded China’s concerns and resolute opposition to her visit to the self-ruled island, which Beijing claims.

Notably, Pelosi was the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the self-governing island in 25 years. China claims Taiwan as its territory and opposes it having its own engagements with foreign governments, the report said.
