6:06 am
aggression against democratic taiwan would have a tremendous impact on the security of the entire into pacific. the man facing deliberately heightened to military threats. ta one will not back down. we will firm yup, hold on nation sovereignty and continue to hold the line of defense for democracy. china, which considers taiwan a part of its territory, has said it once a peaceful reunification and views, policies visit as a direct provocation with her wonder tie one sighing wayne and her ilk a clinging to us and turning their backs on national justice. these behaviors that go against the trend of times will not change the international consensus of one china and will not change the historic trend that tie one will inevitably return to the motherland. those who play with fire will not come to a good end, and those who offend china will be punished. even during policies visit china's reaction was fast and furious. suspending imports and exports of several goods to
6:07 am
and from taiwan, conducting joint air and sea live ammunition drills near taiwan. and summoning the u. s. ambassador in beijing pelosi strip has come to an end. but with chinese american relations at such a low point, it's not clear yet what the long term repercussions of this visit will be. mamma, jim durham as yet. while patrick falk is a journalist based and beijing, and he says, china is cooling these drills unprecedented. while the mother to provocations are far from over, remember, china begins live drills and 6 areas surrounding taiwan to day, effectively encircling the island and demonstrating china's ability to overwhelm it . so i want to fence ministry has criticized move, calling it effectively a thi and air blockade. but one of the reasons why this is happening today and the say is because as we know nancy pelosi has now left the islands and try to wanted
6:08 am
to avoid direct confrontation with the u. s. but it's difficult to say just how far beijing might push the envelope of assertiveness towards taiwan. and that something we're going to be watching very closely today. china has described these drills, including the drills that we've already seen as being unprecedented. and officials quoted in state me to day said that they were to demonstrate a war plan rehearsal and also to show the u. s. in taiwan. the consequences of further provocation. chinese analysts quoted in state media also said that the fact that china did not intercept nancy pelosi, his flight was not a sign of failure. but instead this is being used as an opportunity to progress the goal of reunification or pelosi is now in south korea. and she said to meet with speak at that country's national assembly and chang is tracking the story for us
6:09 am
from bangkok. tony, after all, as the can try to see the last few days play see is now missing more traditional formal. you have allies indeed, and i think the fact that she's not getting the kind of attention she's had in the last 24 hours will be a relief to her. and to the extent to her south korean hosts today, she's as you said, you to meet the speaker of the house and they will release a joint statement we understand later on they probably touching on human rights issues looking across the border into the d. p. k. it was thought she wasn't going to have any communication with president you and he's on vacation at the moment. it was yesterday evening. there nouns there would be a phone call today. south korea is foreign minister is down in nor meant 10 to the meeting. so i think to a certain extent, the south koreans a, quite pleased that this is really just a visit, a full mouth. she will visit the dns z,
6:10 am
the exclusion zone between north and south korea later on today. but really, this is about 4 minutes, is the south koreans a keen, not, of course, not to stir up too much control the control the sea, particularly after the time one visit china remains then number one trading partner . and yet they are still a very close ally, both economically and militarily of the united states. so i don't think they want to be embroiled any further in this. nancy pelosi, i think also keen not to stir up too much fast after the taiwan visit. but she will go on later today to japan, where she'll probably have rather more substantial talks. she said you'll to meet prime minister because she there in tokyo. and there's going to be the final chip of the visit, but also whether she'll probably do slightly more substantive business than she's doing. and so today, tiny chang there for us following that visit for us from bangkok. thank you tony.

6:12 am
is taking place against the backdrop of a long standing territorial dispute in the south china sea, where several member states of ozzy and have overlapping claims with china. now, you know, we've seen china use increasingly aggressive tactic in the last few years to take its claim. and that has led to confrontations with, for example, the philippines, vietnam in the past 9 that causes concern that member takes. don't want to see that happening and southeast asian country want to have a unified code of conduct, but that's proving to be quite difficult to achieve. member states, non claim and member states have been accused of fighting with china in the past. for example, cambodia, when it was the host last year, the last time 10 years ago, it was the 1st time that the member states were not able to agree on a final joint communicate number. things are keen to not see that happening again now and add to that mix is the us with it pivot to asia as glad commitment of one
