China Sanctions Pelosi, Family After Visit to Taiwan

China has announced sanctions against United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her family. The move comes after Pelosi visited Taiwan two days ago. China’s Foreign Ministry made the announcement today saying Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan was an ‘egregious provocation’ and a ‘gross interference’ into the country’s internal affairs. At a press conference yesterday Pelosi said that China wouldn’t be successful in isolating Taiwan from the rest of the world.
