The US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has now left Taiwan and China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi who looked angry called the situation a “complete farce.”

Yi furiously wagging his finger said that the US has violated “China’s sovereignty” and accused Taiwan of “rising on the US’s coat tails.”

The Foreign Minister added, “the perverse actions would not alter… the historical trend that Taiwan will return to the motherland.”

Another Chinese official warned the White House, “Those who play with fire will perish by it and those who offend China will be punished.”

Moscow has waded in to the situation and warned that the world is now closer to world war and accused Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan as “provocation.”

The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that the level of tension which the US has provoked by Pelosi’s visit to Taipei “should not be underestimated.”

Peskov told reporters that there are no planned visits between President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping over Pelosi’s visit.

Pelosi’s trip to Taipei has heightened US-China tensions and the Communist Party said that the trip could embolden Taiwan to make its decades-old de facto independence permanent, which will lead to war Beijing warns.

Arthur Zhin-Sheng Wang, a defence studies expert at Taiwan’s Central Police University said by China using live fire military drills in their territorial waters and air space is “risky.”

Wang said, that “according to international rules of engagement, this can possibly be seen as an act of war.”
