Asked at a press conference if she considered that her visit to Taiwan had not been beneficial for the island, the president of the House of Representatives has said that it is a “ridiculous” dispute, alleging that the Asian country is one of “the most free from the world.”

“We have said from the beginning that our representation here is not about changing the ‘status quo’ here in Asia. It is again about Taiwan relations law and US-China policy,” Pelosi said during her visit to Japan on the last day of her Asian tour, according to a statement from her office.

On the other hand, Pelosi has agreed with the Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, that both countries work together to maintain peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, the Japanese agency NHK reported.

“We confirm that Japan and the United States will continue to work closely together to maintain peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait,” said Kishida, who shared with Pelosi the importance of guaranteeing “a free and open Indo-Pacific”.

After this, Tokyo has presented a diplomatic proposal to Beijing and has shown its concern about Chinese military training, announced after Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, where she arrived on Tuesday night.
