Taiwan crisis: China imposes sanctions on Pelosi over ‘provocative actions’

The Guardian

China’s government has announced sanctions against the US House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, for “vicious and provocative actions” in going to Taiwan, as large-scale military activity around the island continues.

The sanctions, which also target Pelosi’s direct relatives, were reported by state media on Friday afternoon.

“Pelosi … insists on sneaking away from Taiwan, seriously interferes in China’s internal affairs, seriously undermines China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, seriously tramples on the one-China principle, and seriously threatens peace and stability in the Taiwan strait,” it said.
