Pelosi, who is currently leading a Congressional delegation to the Indo-Pacific region, with her last stop in Tokyo, said her visit was 'not about changing the status quo' but recognised China 'made their strikes probably using our visit as an excuse'. Pelosi said the Chinese have tried to isolate Taiwan, adding, 'we will not allow them to isolate Taiwan ... They are not doing our travel schedule.'
