No mention of Taiwan in Pelosi's trip to Asia
In a statement, the speaker said she would travel with a congressional delegation to Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, and Japan to "discuss how we can further advance our common interests and values." These include peace and security, economic growth, and trade.
Despite threats issued by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and an apparent mobilization of the regime's military in the South China Sea, her comments did not mention a potential stop in Taiwan. It claims Taiwan is a part of its territory, despite it being self-governed since 1949 and never controlled by the regime.
“Today, our congressional delegation travels to the Indo-Pacific to reaffirm America’s strong and unshakeable commitment to our allies and friends in the region,” Pelosi said.
Beijing might shoot down Pelosi's plane if it is escorted by military personnel to Taiwan, an official with the state-run Global Times wrote on July 30.
