White House summons Chinese ambassador over continued provocations over Taiwan


The Biden administration summoned the Chinese ambassador on Thursday to condemn China’s escalatory actions toward Taiwan following Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island.

Both in the lead-up to and following Pelosi’s visit, Beijing ramped up its rhetoric and conducted more aggressive military drills meant as a show of force against Taiwan and as a message to the United States, while the U.S. maintains that Pelosi’s visit changed nothing about the status quo. In the aftermath of the trip, China also announced it would be enacting eight different measures in response to Pelosi’s visit, which includes suspending conversations between senior-level military commanders on cross-border crime, drug trafficking, and climate change.
