Pelosi: Visit strong statement US stands with Taiwan

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement on Wednesday that her visit to Taipei "should be seen as a strong statement that America stands with Taiwan."

"America’s solidarity with the people of Taiwan is more important today than ever, as we continue to support the defense of democracy against autocracy in the region and in the world," Pelosi stated.

The US official decided to go ahead with the visit to Taiwan despite strong warnings from China against such a move. After her arrival on the island, Beijing accused Pelosi of "seriously violating" the one-China principle, for which the US officially respects.
