US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said China cannot prevent world leaders from visiting Taiwan.
Pelosi’s comments came in conjunction with a call by the G7 foreign ministers to China not to change the status quo by force.
Pelosi left Taipei, Taiwan on Wednesday after having a controversial visit to the island that had escalations with China.
The visit was highly condemned by China, threatening to take serious actions due to Pelosi’s visit as the Asian country considered the US official’s visit to the island as an interference in China’s interior matters.
During her visit which lasted for less than a day, Pelosi asserted US solidarity for the island, adding that the US won’t abandon Taiwan.
