After a short stay for one night, I will meet Tsai Ing-wen tomorrow and leave Taiwan on the afternoon of the 3rd.

The Chinese side has recently made intensive voices about Pelosi’s possible visit to Taiwan.

At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on August 1, a reporter asked: “You mentioned that ‘the Chinese military will never sit idly by’, can you elaborate on this? What do you mean? If Pelosi visits Taiwan, what might happen?” In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that Pelosi’s identity determines that her visit to Taiwan must be highly sensitive. No matter when or how she goes to Taiwan, she will seriously violate the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiqués, seriously undermine Sino-US relations, and will definitely have bad political impact. If House Speaker Pelosi visits Taiwan, China will take firm and strong countermeasures to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity. As for what measures, if she dares to go, let us wait and see.
