In response to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, Beijing announced on Friday that it was ending cooperation with Washington on many issues.
China announced on Friday to end cooperation with the United States on several issues after the visit this week to Taiwan by the leader of the American deputies Nancy Pelosi.
Beijing will “suspend China-US climate change talks” and cancel a military leaders’ talk as well as two security meetings, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has said, citing “contempt” shown by Ms. Pelosi about China’s strong opposition” to his visit to Taiwan.
Justice and transnational crime concerned
China and the United States, the two largest emitters of greenhouse gases, struck a surprise climate deal at the COP26 summit in Glasgow last year.
They pledged to work together to accelerate climate action over the next decade and to meet regularly to “address the climate crisis”.
Among other measures announced on Friday, the Foreign Ministry said it was suspending cooperation with Washington on the repatriation of illegal migrants, as well as on justice, transnational crime and the fight against drugs.
Earlier, he had indicated imposing sanctions on Nancy Pelosi and her close family, without detailing what they consisted of. China, which considers Taiwan as an integral part of its territory, launched this Thursday, in response to the visit of the American elected official, the most important military exercises in its history around the island, which will last until Sunday. .
