Updated 18:58, 05-Aug-2022

In response to the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's egregious provocation, China has decided to adopt sanctions on Pelosi and her immediate family members in accordance with relevant laws of the People's Republic of China, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson announced Friday.

In disregard of China's grave concerns and firm opposition, Pelosi insisted on visiting Taiwan, which constitutes a gross interference in China's internal affairs, said the spokesperson. 

"It gravely undermines China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, seriously tramples on the one-China principle, and severely threatens peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait," the spokesperson added.
