House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not have any apparent plans to visit the island democracy of Taiwan after Chinese diplomats threatened 'unbearable consequences' if she visited the self-ruled island under Chinese occupation.
In a press release on Sunday, her office said she would visit four Asian countries — but Taiwan was not on the list.
'Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a Congressional delegation to the Indo-Pacific region, including visits to Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan,' the press release read.
It specified that the visit would include those countries, but did not specify whether Pelosi — who is number three in the line of presidential succession — might make other stops.
'The trip will focus on mutual security, economic partnership and democratic governance in the Indo-Pacific region,' it said.
'In Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan, our delegation will hold high-level meetings to discuss how we can further advance our shared interests and values, including peace and security, economic growth and trade, the COVID-19 pandemic, the climate crisis, human rights and democratic governance.'
