Regarding this, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “We are canceling the meeting between the United States and China regarding climate change. Also, we are canceling the meeting of the army chiefs that was to be held regarding security.
China and the US are the largest emitters of carbon globally. This was pointed out at the COP26 summit in Glasgow last year. In this situation, there are reports that the two countries are going to hold talks on controlling carbon emissions. In this situation, China has canceled this meeting.
In this situation, there are reports that China is going to impose economic sanctions on Nancy Pelosi and her family.
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Taiwan on Tuesday as part of her Asia tour. With this trip, Nancy Pelosi became the first US official to visit Taiwan after 25 years. China expressed strong displeasure with Nancy’s visit. China also said that the US was interfering in China’s internal affairs.
Nancy’s visit has seen China conduct advanced anti-aircraft missile defense exercises near the Taiwan border. Subsequently, Taiwan’s military has publicly announced that it is ready to face China if it starts a war. This creates tension.
