Tensions spike ahead of Pelosi's expected visit

Taiwan is bracing for a potential show of force from China as US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was expected to arrive on the island late Tuesday.

สมัครสล็อตxo วอลเล็ต Of course, everyone knows that you choose the online slot machine you want to play. Another thing I would recommend is that you should choose a game where each reel can be rotated again.

Her visit - which is not backed by the White House - would be the first by such a senior US official in decades.

Ms Pelosi is the third-highest ranking official in the US government and a long-time critic of Beijing.

China has repeatedly warned against the visit and on Tuesday said the US would "pay the price".

Taiwan is a self-ruled island, but claimed by China, which sees it as a breakaway province.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China had been in communication with the US about sensitivity of the visit.

"The US side will bear the responsibility and pay the price for undermining China's sovereign security interests," she said.

On Tuesday China sent warplanes up to the median line, the informal dividing line in the Taiwan Strait between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan.

Its forces have also been holding live fire drills and the Chinese military's eastern command posted a video online saying it was "fully prepared for any eventuality".

Taiwan's defence ministry said it had a full grasp of military activities near the island and was determined to defend itself against any Chinese threats.

The US has formal diplomatic relations with China and not Taiwan but maintains what it calls a "robust, unofficial relationship" with the island.
