Breaking: Pelosi Arrives in Taiwan Despite Chinese Threat of ‘Serious Consequences’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday despite China warning of “resolute and strong measures” if the Democrat visited the island, according to the Associated Press.

The visit has inflamed tensions with China, which claims Taiwan as part of its territory. China views trips by foreign government officials to Taiwan as an acknowledgment of the island’s sovereignty.

Pelosi’s visit makes her the highest-ranking American official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Washington's betrayal "on the Taiwan issue is bankrupting its national credibility."

"Some American politicians are playing with fire on the issue of Taiwan," Wang said in a statement, according to the AP. "This will definitely not have a good outcome … the exposure of America's bullying face again shows it as the world's biggest saboteur of peace."
