Just days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China started conducting live-fire missile drills around the contested territory.

  • Yun Sun, director of the China Program at the Stimson Center, said the Chinese are “trying to change the status quo” and use Pelosi’s trip as justification for future aggressive military activities in the Taiwan Strait.
  • She said the drills are “pretty significant,” projecting China’s military presence and the threat it poses to Taiwan.
  • The trip demonstrated strong U.S. support for Taiwan and communicated to China that it cannot control U.S. actions, she said.
