BEIJING, China (The Adobo Chronicles, HongKong Bureau)- Last year, Nancy Pelosi who was then Speaker of the US House of Representatives visited Taiwan and met with President Tsai Ing-wen. Last April, current Speaker Keven McCarthy did the same. This, of course, angered Beijing.
The visits of the Democrat and Republican legislators prompted China to engage in military exercises across the Taiwan Strait.
Now China is also upset that Philippine Senato Risa Hontiveros visited Taiwan and met with Ing-wen. In protest, China is contemplating in sending more Chinese fishing vessels in the South China Sea, near the Philippines’ territorial waters.
Moral of the story: For every action, there is a corresponding reaction.
