8:04 am
south korea. since donald trump did it in 2019. and i think that it also illustrates just what a change there is in policy or regarding the trump administration, the by the administration of trump. but put very the dpr k, very much at the top of his foreign policy, a gender in asia. there were those 2 summits or where he at, she met kim duncan, but there's been, it's been much quieter under the bi biden administration. i mean, while a senior chinese diplomat has described nancy, place his visit to taiwan as planned and provocative. meanwhile, taiwan has scrambled jets to one of 27 chinese aircraft in its defense zone. now because at that most powerful politician was there for less than a day, stressing washington support for taiwan. china's military has responded conducting a serious address and fixed exclude zones that surrounds ty, 13 of the zones overlap areas that taiwan says a part of its territorial waters. the drills include long range live ammunition

8:07 am
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 and from taiwan, conducting joint air and sea live ammunition drills near taiwan. and summoning the u. s. ambassador in beijing, policies trip 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 momentum job as it oh, there is ng has in the last allied described to lucy's visit as a manic, irresponsible, and extremely irrational act of the us, patrick fuck is a journalist based and beijing, and he says, china is calling 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
8:08 am
. so i want to fence ministry has criticized the move, calling it effectively a fee 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 to avoid direct confrontation with the u. s. but it's difficult to say just how far beijing might push the envelope of assertiveness or 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
