US calls Chinese threats ‘outright act of war’ over Pelosi visit to Taiwan

If China carry out threats addressed to Washington due to the visit of the speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, it would be considered a “direct act of war,” said the Republican senator Marsha Blackburn.

In particular, we are talking about Chinese media reports that Beijing intends to shoot down a plane carrying an American politician.

“Chinese state media just suggested the PLA (People’s Liberation Army of China. — Note. ed.) shoot down Pelosi’s plane if she goes to Taiwan. It would be a direct act of war,” Blackburn said.

According to the senator, the United States does not accept threats from either China or any other “military hooligan.”
