What has Nancy Pelosi achieved with her visit to Taiwan? - DW News.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Pelosi was "seriously interfering in China's internal affairs and seriously undermining China's sovereignty and territorial integrity," with her visit to Taiwan this week. Beijing said Pelosi had disregarded China's concerns and resolute opposition to her visit to the self-ruled island, which China claims as its own. The ministry said China would "impose sanctions on Pelosi and her immediate family," without giving further details. China also said it was canceling or suspending dialogue with the US on a range of issues — from climate change to military relations and anti-drug efforts — in retaliation for Pelosi's trip.

"We believe that this is fundamentally irresponsible," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said in response to the suspension of cooperation on climate change. "They think they're punishing us by shutting down this channel," Kirby said. "They're actually punishing the whole world because the climate crisis doesn't recognize geographic boundaries and borders."
