A US Air Force Boeing C-40C took off on July 30 from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and headed for the Pacific Ocean. Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi is believed to be on board, Izvestia reports.
Earlier it was reported that Pelosi was supposed to start a tour of Southeast Asia. In particular, the speaker of the US House of Representatives plans to visit Japan, Singapore and South Korea. In addition, the media is discussing the likely visit of Pelosi to Taiwan.
Earlier, the Chinese authorities opposed the visit to the island of the speaker of the US House of Representatives. The White House also warned Nancy Pelosi of the risks if she came to Taiwan, as they fear China’s reaction to this move. Subsequently , information appeared that the speaker would fly to Taipei on an American military aircraft.
#Editorial: If Pelosi's plane is found flying toward our airspace, the PLA fighter jets could warn, follow, intercept, electronically interfere, force a landing, or drive it back. https://t.co/iNXwwKYIhw pic.twitter.com/wOTLNqbSru
