China may create a no-fly zone to prevent Pelosi from visiting Taiwan

China may create a no-fly zone to prevent Pelosi from visiting Taiwan

If Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi does not abandon her plans to visit Taiwan and fly to the island, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) may impose a no-fly zone over the region.

It is noted that Beijing has so far sought to maintain the “one China” principle, according to which Taiwan is an integral part of the PRC. However, the government of Taipei is not actually subordinate to the Chinese authorities, although it has not declared its independence.

Beijing sees Nancy Pelosi’s possible visit to Taiwan as a violation of the One China principle. The Chinese Ministry of Defense declared that her arrival was inadmissible, promising that the PLA would not “sit idly by“.


The White House warned Pelosi about the risks of a planned visit to Taiwan against the wishes of Beijing.
