Beijing considers the island an integral part of Chinese territory and its foreign minister, Wang Yi, told Cambodia on the sidelines of a regional summit on Thursday that Pelosi’s visit was a “blatant provocation” of states. States and created an “unfortunate precedent” in relations between the two countries. The Chinese army on Thursday fired ballistic missiles and deployed its air force and navy in six maritime areas around Taiwan, approaching up to 20 kilometers from the coast and disrupting some of the busiest trade routes in the world. . By Friday, 68 Chinese fighter jets and 13 warships had crossed the “median line” of the Taiwan Strait, according to the Taiwanese military. Criticizing these movements in the arm of the sea that separates the island from mainland China, the Ministry of Defense denounced “highly provocative” military exercises by Beijing. INFOGRAPHY LE MONDE “The temperature is quite high” “These provocations represent a significant escalation (…) [Pékin] conducts dangerous actions at a new level”, commented, on the side of the United States, the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, traveling Friday in Cambodia for a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean, comprising ten countries). Washington accused Beijing of having “chosen to overreact” to Nancy Pelosi’s visit, and warned that its aircraft carrier Reagan would continue to “monitor” the surroundings of the island, while announcing that it had postponed an intercontinental missile test for avoid aggravating the crisis.

Japan expressed a formal diplomatic protest against Beijing, believing that five of the Chinese missiles fell inside its exclusive economic zone (EEZ). These maneuvers are “a serious problem which affects our national security and that of our citizens”, declared the Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida: “We call for the immediate cessation of the military exercises. In Tokyo, the last leg of her eventful Asian tour, Pelosi said the United States “will not allow” China to isolate Taiwan. This tour of the region “was not intended to change the status quo here in Asia, to change the status quo in Taiwan,” she said. Taiwan calls China a “malicious neighbour” On Thursday, the official New China news agency reported, the People’s Liberation Army “flew more than 100 warplanes, including fighters and bombers”, as well that “more than ten destroyers and frigates”. State broadcaster CCTV claimed that Chinese missiles even flew over Taiwan for the first time. Taipei’s defense ministry, however, did not confirm the trajectory of the projectiles, “considering that the primary purpose of the CCP’s missile launch [Parti communiste chinois] is to intimidate us and for the purpose of protecting the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of the military,” a statement said. “We did not expect the malevolent neighbor to flaunt its power at our doorstep, and arbitrarily endanger the world’s busiest waterways with its military exercises,” Taiwan’s premier told reporters.
