China could make show of force if Pelosi visits Taiwan: US


The White House says China may respond to Nancy Pelosi's mooted visit to Taiwan with military provocations.

The spokesman John Kirby has said this could include firing missiles near Taiwan, or large-scale air or naval activities.

Nancy Pelosi, the US House of Representatives Speaker, is on a tour of Asia.

Taiwanese and US media outlets say she plans to visit Taipei, but this has not been confirmed by the US government.

Earlier, Beijing had warned US of consequences of Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
