China takes pot shots at America as harassment of Taiwan intensifies

The regime has also halted co-operation on cross-border crime prevention, combatting drug trafficking and repatriating illegal migrants.

China’s Communist rulers view the self-governed democracy of Taiwan as its own and claim Ms Pelosi’s visit was a provocation.

The Taiwanese defence ministry said 68 Chinese military aircraft and 13 ships conducted missions in the Taiwan Strait – with some crossing into its territorial waters. Missiles have also been fired over Taiwan.

China’s military said it conducted air and sea drills “to test the troops’ joint combat capabilities”. The official news agency said fighters, bombers, destroyers and frigates united in “joint blockage operations”.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said there was no justification for Beijing’s “extreme disproportionate and escalatory” response.

A spokesman for UN chief Antonio Guterres said there is “no way to solve the most pressing problems of all the world without an effective dialogue and cooperation” between the US and China.
