12:04 pm
so our theda, rachel blevins are correspondent joining us here life. this rolling coverage through an archie international you've been following this story, not just to day, but essentially for many, many days. now. the big news is of course that the u. s. how speak nancy pelosi despite all the warnings and the, and the threats from china. you know, you play with fire, you're going to get burned. she still touches down in taipei, is just about 5 minutes past midnight there now she's probably pretty exhausted, but nonetheless, she is a, i guess the, the star in the you in the whole global media. right. now what are your expectations for her visit? they know what china things, but what's the whole plan? what's the idea? right. all eyes have really been on nancy pelosi to day. we did see confirmation that she did arrive at the hotel that she was planning to stay their anti pe. you
12:05 pm
know, it's interesting because when it comes to the breakdown of how this visit is going to play out, a lot of that has happened in secret with sort of these reports of what may happen because of course, she did not include this trip on her official itinerary of her overall trip to asia that she's taking this week and that's just by numerous reports saying that she was planning on going to taiwan. now, what was also notable is in the face of these continued warnings from beijing, right. they have referred to this as a red line. they have told her do not go and they have told her that there will be some sort of a response. well, at the same time, post the lands and her team releases this statement where they say that this visit is a way of her celebrating the quote unquote vibrant democracy their anti want. they may be wondering, what are the people in taiwan thinking, if polo is so focused on democracy? well, we've heard from a number of people there who say that they are very concerned about the long term impact of her visit. what that is going to mean for them long after she's back in
12:06 pm
the us, take a listen to the end to say it's all about mercury interest. they use taiwan. they, they use the 2 political a measure to, to benefit themselves. they only care about how the government can be holding the power it is in there in then states. okay, so they just used high one to get our attention for domestic market from good to lucy, touch china's bottom line. she touched the red line. so both the u. s. and china have to take actions accordingly. so only pelosi will benefit from the elusive visit. that's all i know. hello sees visit will add tensions across the taiwan strait, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. i really hope the americans won't come around to mess things up so that we can live a peaceful life. rachel,
12:07 pm
it hasn't exactly been a really united front in washington dc running up to the strip from nancy pelosi. now we know there's been live fire drills of the china coast in the past 24 hours. i just in the last couple of hours, air raid sirens, i'm, you imagine you're in taipei or on the china. can you hear air raid sirens? you know, from your apartment at nearly midnight, it's going to be slightly concerning. i'd love to know that when it comes to washington and the house, because supporters, how would they justifying this visit? well, so far a lot of that justification has simply been from those who said that she should go, because china said she should not go as if she needed to stand up and defy beijing in some way. but it's been notable the response that we've seen from the, by an administration as a whole, where president biden said earlier, he admitted that the u. s. military did not think that this visit was a good idea that they were concerned about the ways in which it would increase tensions between the us and china. exactly as we have seen play out. but on top of
12:08 pm
that, secretary of state lincoln also spoke out and he said initial lee that he didn't know if follows. he was going to make this trip. but that it was entirely up to her and think about what that sets up right now. people as he is the speaker of the house, she's 3rd in line to the presidency, but she's not the united states president. and yet you have the white house saying it is up to her if she makes this trip. if she breaks decades of diplomacy between the u. s. and china and granted, now we do have this most recent statement, which was a little more serious. but up until that point, pelosi arguably downplayed the situation. take a listen to what she said about it earlier. the president earlier well, earlier in his term talked about a strong emphasis on the asian pacific. he, he has visited their spice president, visited the secretary of commerce and others. and we want that congress of the united states to be part of that initiative. of course, as a west coast person,
12:09 pm
we see that pacific as they're, you know, they're, they're home, we're part of that as well. yeah. so she's claiming that she just wanted to see more of the pacific ocean. and of course, in the past, ignoring those, increasing tensions all around her. as you mention, it has got to be tens and tie. pay right now as well as the is there and truly, she's feeling not as well friends and probably in taipei but you know, you, you wonder what kind of entertainment value this is getting in america in the u. s . press me. i know what you would, you're saying that, you know, in the run up to policies because it has been a fair amount of partisan divide. but what about just in general in america, in general there what is the view and pelosi visit? well, the biggest question seems to be, why is shame barking on this visit in the 1st place? right? someone like polo. see all of a sudden announcing that she's going to asia. she claims that she's going there to visit us allies and that it's a justified visit before the average american who is struggling to pay bills
12:10 pm
struggling with skyrocketing gas prices. they're likely wondering why in the world pelosi is going to literally the other side of the world to go and visit countries there and to go and visit a place like taiwan, despite all of the warnings that we've heard all around this. and now we're starting to hear some of those voices from people who are questioning why she would take such a risk. take, listen to what was said. there nothing good will come of it. taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit. and a lot of bad things could happen. these include a chinese military response that could result in the u. s. being plunged into in direct conflicts with a nuclear armed russia and a nuclear armed china. at the same time this week with the blessing, the by the ministration, nancy pelosi decided to head to taiwan. it's all confirmed at this point. government officials in taipei have just been notified that policies arrival is imminent. you may be in the air right now. she's definitely coming. one source told
12:11 pm
the wall street journal. the only variable is whether she spends the night. so nancy pelosi goes to taipei, what's the effect of that? well, we don't need to guess the chinese government has said repeatedly and clearly that if nancy pelosi lands in taiwan, it could trigger a global war. are you here to provoke a wool or to start a wall? what the hell are you doing here? hello, see? so now we continue to wait for what that overall international reaction is going to be, especially from beijing, and also to see what the united states has to say as that visit goes on where you are. you talk about international reaction. rachel, i mean i, i just read a headline a short time ago coming out of london that london saying, oh, we're going to do a similar visit to taipei and the next couple of months as well. it's well entirely surprising to hear that i guess, but i guess that that seem to be some western political figures who are enjoying the, the amount of reaction and response is coming out of this. what about international reaction? you mentioned some of it. i know moscow has already
12:12 pm
a voice. it's view on this. what do we know? that's right. a spokesperson for the kremlin, spoke out and referred to this trip as provocative noted that russia stands with china here. and then moscow understands beijing's prostration when it comes to the united states and is really ramping up these tensions take. listen to what was that? yeah, by we've got we've got that coming off of onto the website right now at r t dot com it's, it's a pretty rolling fluid situation here at auto international. a lot of information coming in every few minutes to correspond rachel blevins. please don't go away. really enjoying coverage. stick around. ok. thanks very much for that. that's a little bit further into national, by the way. really good to have with us today. i'm rory sushi, by the way. let's get the thoughts now from the vice president of the center for china and globalization. victor gao, joining us here on our team to national a very good evening to use back in washington. pelosi supporters, a calling this high risk and a high reward. what kind of reward can we talk about you think?
12:13 pm
i don't think there will be any rewards except for her personal reward. for example, if that's what you is looking for. nancy pelosi now inc. type a is completely disregard the repeated counseling by the us president joe biden. timing was not right for her to really pie one. she is completely disregarding counseling from the u. s. u. s. military leaders council not to go, because the wrong time me and she completely disregarded the repeated waldis by the chinese government. because china says our visit will hollow out the one china policy will be in violation of the one china policy and will really cause more damage to china us relations. so she is today and tonight she troublemaker in the whole world because she disregarded sanity judgment. and the rash analogy in pursuing her personal goals in taiwan. whether she wanted to use
12:14 pm
this visit to hide the fact or the husband is appearing cold in the united states. that's another matter. but i think people in this part of the world, people on both sides of the tower straight, do not want to see nancy pelosi because she does not have and the legitimate business in the try, not area. even the cross straight relation is what she breathes is only bad news and disaster she made really grow a big wedge in the china, us relations on the white hands and in the cross street relations. if any, sorry, sorry to interrupt, but is there any particular particular reason, do you think why nancy pelosi would want to be the chief troublemakers? you call her right now in the region? what do you really think her aims are here? well, 1st of all, she is scandals in her family look at how they enrich themselves by doing side
12:15 pm
deals. for example, this is now serving or constant tuesday and she wants to put a finishing cotton to her political career. as for example, a global reader, cherry, up with the so called the allies or regions of china like taiwan. in reality, people know what she's up to. people know the legal difficulties of family are involved in years and people know the self serving business practices or husbands or family have been involved with over the decades. she is not shown the example of states all great politicians in the united states. she really represents the barcode side serving sides of the u. s. politician. and she does not care about the fundamental interest on the people in taiwan. because people in taiwan to have peace and they want to have eventual reification with charles mainland. this is the
12:16 pm
mega trends journal, and that is the policy doesn't care. the people on both sides of the taiwan straits . all chinese people and the u. s. government fully acknowledged that there is only one china and how one is part of china and the people's republic of china is the sold exhibits. government represent the polity of the chinese people. mr. guy, i can jump in just a moment here you making some a very interesting commentary. what when you were referred to in nancy pelosi and her husband, i think your phone's allegations of possible inside a traitor. but, but that, that's a story that we don't have time for today. it's a big potential story too. but when you talk about politicians lining their pockets, so to speak. and you know, some people do question why the majority of sentences on capitol hill happened to be millionaires. but that again is another story for another time. talk to us about the chinese people. what, what is the general reaction in the public to nancy's policies?
12:17 pm
a so called visit to tie one. first of all on tremors may learn people completely upset with nancy pelosi is visited by why they view this as a violation on the one trying to policy. they look at this as an insult to the dignity and the decency, all the chinese people. now there are more people in taiwan that will believe that nancy pelosi is a visit to taiwan, is holding the people in taiwan 23000000 of them as palms in the u. s. initiated geopolitical rivalry between china and the united states. she doesn't care about the fundamental interests of the people by juan and the people that i want do not want to become poems. they do not want to be used as chips in the us. china geopolitical rivalry goes each other. and this is exactly what does the blow see is doing. she is m a g, the fundamental foundation of china,
12:18 pm
u. s. government government and military to military relations. it makes it more difficult while the chinese government and the u. s. government to re engage with each other and i believe the chinese people now to bite very much rallied to behind the chinese government in condemning nancy. ready body holding her as a trouble maker in chief in the world. and really she is damaging the fundamental interest of the american people, the fundamental interests of the chinese people and the fundamental interest of the people in taiwan. all our chinese people themselves. mister gow, there's an awful lot being said these days about an act of provocation, an awful lot of people referring to pillows, he's visit as of a provocative act when it comes to where china sits in the world. if you look at a map of us military base is, there's an awful lot of us military bases on the northeast, east and southeast in flank of china. and if one entire side of the country is
12:19 pm
essentially facing one military from america here, here, here and here, you imagine that china has been feeling somewhat to some. so i get some time of a 60 ation, in some degree with the amount of u. s. military hardware in the area, it's been f a year. that doesn't seem to show any signs of going away. we've seen these, these freedom of navigation acts when the u. s. war ships, for example, a petroleum through the taiwan strait in the south, china sea. and america is saying that china is being assertive and assertive and china saying, well, what are you doing over here? you're being assertive, why are you selling your ships up and down on coastlines, here, the u. s. and a nato, i've spoken about their plans to expand in the indo pacific to do you think that the possible future scenario, that america and nato are going to even solidify further than military base and that part of the world? well, i think you touched upon many important issues. i think it is the aggressive nature of the united states in this part of the world. and this is also one reason why we
12:20 pm
do not have regional stability and peace prevailing to a very large extent. now be extensive, u. s. military bases running up to several, hundreds of them. for example, the different parts of the world are not making the world a safer place. they are really making the world's most dangerous and more unsafe. the fact that the united states has been involved in world war after another. and in recent years, the war in afghanistan, what you run for about 20 is the war in syria and the walk in iraq. you name. it also demonstrated to the people in the world that the u. s. fundamental aid is not a force for peace. now, of all the circle been, the china, the united states is building this so called the 1st i like island chain, a 2nd island chain, et cetera. they want to subjugate china. they want to deprive the chinese people their right to the development punch. on the other hand,
12:21 pm
they completely under estimate the resilience of the chinese people because we are a big country. 1.4000000000 people, well, 5 times larger as of the india economy. for example, we are already larger than the united states because we are using power parity. we are already about 80 percent of that of the united states. if we use official exchange rates as the benchmark. and in less than 10 years, the chinese, the color mo, will pass that of the united states. if we use the official exchange rates as the benchmark. so i think decision makers in washington need to wake up to the fact that they need to deal with china as it is. they need to respect china as a unique culture, as a country which pursues development in peaceful means. and i'm trying to, and the united states eventually need to get along with these java rather then for
12:22 pm
the united states of the new china as an enemy, as a force that they want to hold down. i think the united states has already made his position pretty, pretty clear on that. they've been saying for years, but china is the enemy because china is going to be the next economy kingpin. and then, and many people are saying, well, what america go quietly into the night and allow china to be the economic kingpin of the future world. i wanted to ask you, mr. gout, well what i still got you here. how much of this pelosi visited taiwan is a bit of a distraction? do you think? of course, ukraine's been front incentive for the past 5 months. joe biden, his potential dementia. he's got cove it again. then you've got america saying we have a recession. no, we don't have a recession. technically we have a recession. no, we don't have a recession. america's got mid term elections coming soon. 2024 is not far away from the white house. is by going to be okay to run again. is that certain? is there any certain element of distraction right now being used by western governments, washington on the western press with pelosi in ty pay?
12:23 pm
absolutely, i think poses visit to taiwan, is a big distraction, is actually diverged people's attention onto major issues. facie big countries like china, the united states, that russia, for example, diverting people for handing the big issues like energy crisis, financial crisis, food crisis, a war piece issue for example. and this is really the true nature of nancy closes, which is very much of a self service visit. it completely is regards the walgreens of the us president at the us funding and the chinese government. and it really does not in the in dia, nancy pelosi to the chinese people, a block. and eventually, for example, china and the chinese people mil may view her as an arch enemy because she is stirring up trouble. she is really making china us relations multiple of the handle
12:24 pm
. and jeremy even downgrade is about the relations with the united states as a result of this serious violation of the one on the policy. because one thing that job i cannot tolerate is anyone doing anything to hollow out the one china policy see, and this is exactly watched nancy pelosi is doing right now to be physically in high pay tonight. mister got my last question for you before i let you go and thank you so much for joining us here on this top story here on our international wanting to ask you really what comes next. nancy pelosi is in type pe, she'll be go into hotel hotel room. she'll be up early tomorrow morning, maybe to go outside, do some p r shoots and to show symbol of freedom and democracy in whatever p r stunting she wants to do. but what is china going to do in the next 24 to 36 hours? yeah, i think janet may do several things. one is to impose sanctions on nancy pelosi and those traveling with r y,
12:25 pm
the official capacity and china will prohibit the policy and their family to engaging any business with china with china's hong kong and macau special ministry of region. and also with taiwan, was taiwan. is reunited with john and nancy pelosi are family members will be permanently forbidden to enter into china and china's hong kong and macau regis. and then after peace will reengaged them. they will be to enter into china's hiwassee province. now. secondly, on the government to government level, china will make a strong protest to the u. s. government and alerting that. so number 3, the highest ranking officials in the united states as the policy is violated in the one china policy journal wants to alert to the u. s government and b r a, b c, their responsibility to protect the world john,
12:26 pm
the position of the united states. and they run the risk of really down grady. china us relations from ambassadorial level a present to a fair level in the future for example. and also they may really fundamental, fundamentally undermine the china, us diplomatic relations. so these are all high stakes involved. and i think the chinese drug, we're going to the foreign ministry, the defense ministry, and the national people's congress, c, p, cc, for example. all of these relevant chinese government entities are taking measures right now as we speak to express the indignation. and to call me out as the closer to hold responsible. and i'm afraid china us relations will suffer, heavy hedwig in the coming days and weeks and months. victor gower, the vice president of santa china and globalization. a great pleasure have me
12:27 pm
without your knowledge international for this special rolling coverage. thank you very much for your time. thank you very much for having me. okay, thank you. now the white house has said that us will not allow itself to be intimidated and will take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of nancy pelosi. washington has an rather undeveloped position towards china. are officially called. it's one china policy. it acknowledges beijing is the only legitimate government for the whole of china that includes tie one. however, that along with calls for the peaceful resolution of the taiwan issue, have well not prevented us from maintaining unofficial relations with ty, pay and sending weapons to the island. earlier and american officials had taiwan is not a problem for china us relations, but the current situation does suggest to appear otherwise. the united states no longer sees taiwan is a problem in our relations with china. we see it as an opportunity to advance our shared vision for a free and open in the pacific and also as
12:28 pm
a beacon to people's around the world who aspire for a more just safe, prosperous and democratic world. so why is nancy? pelosi is trip such a big deal. it's because of the one china policy. taiwan is officially recognized by the united states. as part of china usa adopted the one china policy in 1972 usa has no formal ties with the government on taiwan government that was established by the forces who lost out when the communist party to power on the mainland usa has no embassy on taiwan and advocates for taiwan to peacefully re unify with the mainland. this understanding has been key in us china relations for decades in more recent years, as washington drifted toward portraying china as its number one enemy. we've seen washington also drifting away from this policy, hinting its support for taiwan independence as a wage is threatened, shina the united states is hollowing out and the blurting up the one china
12:29 pm
policy. us officials of course, deny that they are wavering on the taiwan issue. but it doesn't help when present biden drops. bombshell statements like this. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that? yes, you are. that's a commitment we made in recent months. us relation to taiwan has gotten much more intense us weapons are piling into taiwan with joe biden approving for different arm sales deals, including $95000000.00 for patriot missile systems. nato is expanding its presence in the region as well with various active posturing in the taiwan straits. there has also been a heated war of words. if any one dares to split, tie one from china, the chinese military will fight at all costs to resolutely smash any taiwan session is to attempt and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. we're not going to let the chinese communist party dictate for the
12:30 pm
speaker of the house should go. as the speaker of the united states house of representatives, you should never have to ask a foreign dictatorship or the state department for permission to talk to america's friends and allies. you know, if, how speaker nancy pelosi visits taiwan, it will grossly interfere in china's internal affairs severely undermined china sovereignty and territorial integrity. treble on the one china policy principle gravely threatened the peace instability in the taiwan strait and undermine china. us relations. it will lead to various serious situation and consequences.
