The Speaker of the House of Representatives of America has landed in Taiwan despite China’s strong protest.
As a result, there is a risk of igniting a major diplomatic crisis between China and America, according to foreign media.
China considers Taiwan as a part of its government and media reports that the United States will give Taiwan great international recognition through this flight.
Before the American Deputy Speaker landed in Taiwan, several Chinese warplanes had passed through Taiwan’s airspace to protest the American Deputy Speaker’s landing in Taiwan.
After the landing, the Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a statement stating that the US would have to suffer severe consequences.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry says that this is a serious violation of China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
China has also stated that China will take all necessary measures for its sovereignty and that all the consequences arising from that should be borne by the American side and the separatist forces in Taiwan.
