    Pelosi affirms that she traveled to Taiwan to “make it very clear” that the US is with the people of the island

    The White House, for its part, insisted that the trip by the Speaker of the House of Representatives does not imply that Washington abandons the principle of one China or that it recognizes the independence of the island.

    The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, declared this Wednesday that with his visit to Taiwan he wanted to make it known that Washington supports the people of the island, which China claims as part of its territory.

    “I led a congressional delegation to Taiwan to make it clear that the United States stands with the people of Taiwan and all who are committed to democracy and human rights,” the senior US official said on Twitter.

    Before Pelosi arrived in Taipei, the White House insisted that her visit does not imply that Washington abandons the one china principle nor that it recognizes the independence of the island. In addition, she stressed that the legislator’s trip was “her decision.”

    “We have been clear from the beginning that she make your own decisions and that Congress is an independent branch of government. Our Constitution enshrines the separation of powers,” said US National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby.
