Any countersteps on Pelosi's Taiwan trip to be justified - China

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying (pictured) warned on Tuesday, during a press briefing, that should the United States continue to go down the wrong path and ignore China's demarches, any countermeasures Beijing resorts to, in response to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's possible visit to Taiwan, will be "justified and necessary."

"Position of the Chinese side is clear. We've repeatedly expressed opposition to the potential visit of Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan and that it's a sensitive issue," Hua noted, reiterating that China will "take strong and resolute measures to ensure our sovereignty and security." The spokeswoman underlined that Beijing will only be exercising the rights any independent country is authorized to have. She further asserted that Taiwan will be facing "disastrous consequences" due to US' actions.
