China warns the United States: “If you dare to go to Taiwan we will wait and see. There will be consequences”

Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, warned the United States on Monday that the consequences of a possible visit by Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan would be very serious.

“If House Speaker Pelosi visits Taiwan, China will certainly take a resolute response and effective countermeasures to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity,” he said. “As for what the measures are, if she dares to leave, let’s wait and see,” he continued.

Pelosi’s official itinerary for her current tour of Asia does not include the island, but Chinese authorities are concerned her plane could make an unscheduled stop.

“We would like to once again warn the US side that the Chinese side is preparing,” Lijian said. “The Chinese People’s Liberation Army will never sit idly by.”

Taiwan has never officially declared its independence from China. Beijing regards the territory as part of the country under the One China policy. The United States maintains strong ties with the island, selling weapons to Taipei and backing its bid for sovereignty.
