    The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, visited Taiwan this week, causing discontent in Beijing. From China they declared that the trip of the high-ranking American official infringes the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, while representing “a serious violation“of the one China principle and of the three joint communiqués between Washington and Beijing.

    In response to Pelosi’s arrival, Beijing announced that it will carry out a series of “selective military operations” as well as “major exercises” with live fire in six maritime zones around Taiwan and their respective airspaces.
