China regards Taiwan as its territory, even though it has had a different government in Taiwan since late 1940s. It opposes diplomatic recognition of Taiwan as an independent nation.

Beijing said that Pelosi’s visit has violated the decades-old ‘One China’ principle, under which the US refrained from formally recognizing Taiwan’s independence. In response to Pelosi’s trip, the Chinese military launched a snap live-fire drill, which Beijing’s state media described as a simulation of “a reunification-by-force operation.”

Yu Chian Chang, a Taiwanese Defense Ministry official, stated that the exercise was successful. “tantamount to a naval and air blockade of Taiwan.” 

The Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned European and Japanese envoys to discuss what Beijing had said. “wanton interference in China’s affairs.” The Group of Seven (G7) and the EU earlier released a statement condemning Beijing’s drill as “unnecessary escalation.”
