China called the US a ‘bully’ after an official said China ‘overreacted’ to Pelosi’s Taiwan visit


Kurt Campbell, the US National Security Council’s Indo-Pacific coordinator, said that Beijing “overreacted” to US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s travel to Taiwan earlier this month. A spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry struck back at his claims.
During a news conference on Wednesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin reportedly remarked, “It is obvious that the US is trying to defend the indefensible by employing gangster logic and acting like a bully,” according to transcripts, The Hill reported.
In response to Pelosi’s visit, China has appeared to retaliate against Taiwan in a number of ways, including military exercises in the Taiwan Strait and import prohibitions on vital goods from the autonomous island.
In a news conference last week, Campbell stated on the record that “China has overreacted” and that “their actions continue to be aggressive, destabilizing, and unprecedented.”
In addition to being “part of an escalated pressure campaign against Taiwan,” Campbell claimed that China’s recent moves are “fundamentally at odds with the purpose of peace and stability.”
Wang responded on Wednesday, claiming that Pelosi’s visit had compromised China’s sovereignty and that “the US, not China, has damaged cross-strait peace and stability.”

China’s aggressive military retaliation against the U.S. According to Taiwan’s de facto envoy to the United States on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s travel to the island has piqued the interest of other parliamentary bodies in making similar visits.

Following Pelosi’s visit earlier this month and the subsequent visits this week by five additional U.S. politicians, China, which claims Taiwan as its territory, conducted its largest-ever military drills near the autonomous island.
According to the White House, China “overreacted” to Pelosi’s visit by performing blockade drills all around the island and sending missiles over Taiwan in an effort to alter the status quo in the Taiwan Strait.
According to Taiwan’s chief ambassador in Washington, Hsiao Bi-khim, “What China is doing is they are generating greater interest than ever to visit Taiwan.”
