“My proposal to the Chinese [government and] Military: If Pelosi visits Taiwan, PLOAC military aircraft will escort Pelosi’s aircraft to enter the island, making the historic crossing of the island by military aircraft from the mainland for the first time,” Hu tweeted. “Its value would outweigh Pelosi’s visit. “

He objected to this Biden administration statements that they do not have specific details or information about the planned trip.

“Biden is supposed to have the ability to prevent Pelosi’s reckless visit, not ‘I don’t know what his status is.’ If the US cannot contain it, let China contain it and punish it. The PLA Air Force will surely make her visit a disgrace to herself and to the United States.”

Taiwan, officially known as the Republic of China, an island nation off the coast of mainland Asia. Taiwan declared itself independent from the People’s Republic of China and announced the continuation of the rule of pre-revolutionary China.

The People’s Republic of China has long claimed sovereignty over Taiwan and the Taiwan Strait, the relatively narrow strip of ocean between the island of Taiwan and the Chinese mainland. The Chinese military frequently sent planes to the area to inspect Taiwan’s air defense zone.

The United States has no official relationship with Taiwan, but is also stepping up engagement with the island. China seeks to isolate him from global institutions.
