After Pelosi’s Taiwan visit, Congress MP has a suggestion for Speaker Om Birla

Congress MP Manish Tewari on Wednesday suggested that an Indian parliamentary delegation led by Speaker Om Birla should also explore a visit to Taiwan after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in the self-governed island. Calling Pelosi’s Taiwan visit historic, Tewari highlighted US President Joe Biden’s assertion that Congress is a co-equal branch of the government, which means the executive has little control over congressional travel.

Speaker @SpeakerPelosi ‘s visit to Taiwan is historic . As President @JoeBiden told Xi Jing Ping Congress is a co equal branch of Govt similarly an Indian Parlimentary delegation led by Speaker @ombirlakota should also explore a visit to Taiwan@TWIndia2 https://t.co/HbbeH719m6

Pelosi landed in Taiwan late Tuesday becoming the highest-ranking American official in 25 years to visit the self-ruled island, angering China, which quickly announced that it would conduct military maneuvers in retaliation. Her visit escalated tension between China and the United States as Beijing claims Taiwan as part of its territory under its one-China policy and views visits by foreign government officials as recognition of the island’s sovereignty.

White House, however, insisted that Pelosi’s Taiwan visit did not constitute a violation of Chinese sovereignty or America’s longstanding “one-China” policy.

“What we don’t want to see is this spiral into any kind of a crisis or conflict,” Kirby told reporters in a Tuesday briefing. “There’s just no reason to amp this up,” White House national security spokesperson John Kirby said on Tuesday.
