US will 'not allow' China to isolate Taiwan: Pelosi

AFP, 05 Aug 2022
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in Tokyo on Friday that the United States will "not allow" China to isolate Taiwan, after her visit to the self-ruled island infuriated Beijing. "They may try to keep Taiwan from visiting or participating in other places, but they will not isolate Taiwan by preventing us to travel there. We had high-level visits, senators in the spring, the bi-partisan way, continuing visits, and we will not allow them to isolate Taiwan," she said. She added that her visit to Taiwan was "not about changing the status quo" in the region. "It is about the Taiwan Relations Act, US-China policy, all of the pieces of legislation and agreements that have established what our relationship is. To have peace in the Taiwan Strait and have the status quo prevail."
