On August 3, United States House Speaker and senior Democratic Party politician Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. In Taipei, Pelosi held talks with President Tsai Ing-Wen. She addressed the legislature and received a civilian honour. Meanwhile, China has since responded with diplomatic, military and economic measures.
Why was the visit significant? Did this visit have anything to do with the welfare of the Taiwanese people? Or has the island nation become a pawn in the larger scheme of things? If push comes to shove, and China does indeed try to capture Taiwan using its military, will we see a military intervention from the US? When a small country such as Taiwan can stand up to China’s bullying, why does India tread with caution here?
In this episode, our host Anna Priyadarshini and Foreign Affairs Editor at India Today, TV Today Network Geeta Mohan delve deep into it and more.
