Why US Speaker, Pelosi visited Taiwan – Russian president, Putin

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan is part of a deliberate U.S. strategy to destabilise the region, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday..



Putin said that the visit was not just by one politician but was part of an underlying strategy.

Recall that Pelosi had visited Taiwan earlier this month in defiance of Chinese threats.

“The U.S. was seeking to destabilise the situation in the Asia-Pacific region and the whole world,’’ Putin said during his speech at the 10th annual Moscow Conference on International Security, NAN reports.

Putin called the move a brazen demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries and for international obligations and a carefully planned provocation.

Speaking at the opening of the conference on Tuesday, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu similarly said that Pelosi’s provocative landing in Taiwan was yet another step to destabilise the region.
