Following the visit of US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, the US summoned China’s Ambassador to the US Qin Gang to the White House to condemn China’s actions.
White House Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre and White House National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby made statements regarding the Taiwan visit of US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which caused tension between the US and China.
Stating that he condemns China’s “irresponsible” military activities near Taiwan, Kirby said, “We condemn these actions, which are irresponsible and go against our longstanding goal of maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the region. “He chose to overreact and use the Pelosi visit as an excuse. We expected that China would take such steps. We expect these actions to continue and the Chinese to continue to react in the coming days.”
