China severed all ties with the US in critical areas

Bangladesh issued a statement reiterating its support for Beijing’s “One China” policy. China regards self-governing Taiwan, which it considers a separate province of China’s sovereign territory, as an independent country. It has long been official US policy to acknowledge, without endorsing, China’s claim to sovereignty over Taiwan.

Beijing made repeated threats in advance of Pelosi’s visit to Taipei, saying her trip would undermine China’s sovereignty and damage US-Chinese relations. Xi Jinping, China’s President, made the warning in a phone call to Joe Biden, just days before Pelosi went to Asia-Pacific. “Those who play with fire will perish by it.”

These warnings weren’t heeded and Pelosi proceeded with her Taiwan tour. China then cut all military and climate relations to Washington.
