A possible visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the self-governing island of Taiwan would damage China-US ties, Beijing’s ambassador to the UN Zhang Jun said in a statement.

According to media reports, Pelosi, third on the US presidential list, could land in Taiwan on Tuesday. That would make her the highest-ranking American official to visit the island since 1997. At a briefing on Monday, Zhang Jun stated:

“Such a visit is obviously dangerous and provocative.”

Among other things, it would “send the wrong signal to separatist elements” in Taiwan, violate China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, threaten peace and stability in the region, and “undermine China-US relations,” he added.

“China is fully prepared to respond. If the US insists on the visit, China will take decisive and strong measures to protect its national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the US must face any serious consequences that may arise.”

warned the envoy.
