Strategic Communications Coordinator at the National Security Council under President Joe Biden John Kirby said the White House approves the likely visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi on the Taiwan island.
“We are talking about an important trip of the speaker, and we will do everything to support it,” the politician emphasized, whose words are quoted CNN.
At the same time, the official noted that Washington is ready to ensure the safety of Pelosi. According to Kirby, she does not need to worry about warnings of a Chinese military response to her arrival in Taiwan.
Earlier, a CNN source among the Taiwanese authorities said they were expecting Pelosi’s visit. According to the official, American politician intends to spend the night on the island.
