Beijing had threatened the United States with reprisals. In the aftermath of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, 27 Chinese military aircraft entered the island’s air defense zone on Wednesday, Taiwan authorities said.

27 Chinese military aircraft “entered the surrounding area (Air Defense Identification Zone, wider than airspace) on August 3, 2022,” the Taiwanese Defense Ministry said on Twitter.

The heads of G7 diplomacy, for their part, considered that there was “no justification” for China to use the visit of the speaker of the American House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan as “a pretext” for “aggressive” military maneuvers.

“It is normal for MPs from our countries to travel internationally. The response in the form of an escalation” from China “risks increasing tensions and destabilizing the region”, judge the seven richest countries (United States, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, United Kingdom ) in a press release.
