China slams ‘extremely dangerous’ US actions in Taiwan as Pelosi visits

China on Tuesday slammed the United States’ actions in Taiwan as “extremely dangerous”, after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived on the island for a visit that has inflamed tensions between the superpowers.

“The United States…┬áconstantly distorts, obscures and hollows out the ‘One China’ principle,” Beijing’s foreign ministry said in a statement after Pelosi’s plane touched down in Taiwan. “These moves, like playing with fire, are extremely dangerous. Those who play with fire will perish by it.”
