Viagem de Pelosi a Taiwan levanta tensões EUA-China

By Jordi Bou

August 2, 2022 - Taiwan prepara-se para uma eventual exibição de força da China, quando se espera que a presidente da Câmara dos Representantes dos EUA, Nancy Pelosi, visite a ilha. A Casa Branca, que não apoiou a visita, advertiu que a China pode responder com provocações militares.

Provocations could include firing missiles near Taiwan, or large-scale air or naval activities, U.S. National Security Council coordinator John Kirby said.

Taiwan’s Defence Ministry said in a statement it has a full grasp of the military activities and will appropriately dispatch forces in reaction to any “enemy threats”.

Taiwan is a self-ruled island, but claimed by China, which sees it as a breakaway province. Beijing has warned of "serious consequences" if Mrs Pelosi visits.
