9:02 pm
the island or china however, sees it as a violation of its territorial integrity and national sovereignty, which is in sharp contrast to the u. s. policy of recognised invasion as the only legitimate government of china, which the u. s. claims to be committed to. hi, nancy pelosi is to meet with a tie when he's president of next. our wall of fear is a peaceful them. china has begun military deal drove in areas surrounding ty, one that's in response to the visit of the u. s. healthy can nancy pelosi to tie pay? here some of the latest footage shared by chinese media. 21 chinese warplanes passed through ty, once a defense identification zone. and according to beijing, military sources. rules will include non nuclear missile launches from the east of the island territory that include live fire exercises and coordination between warships and fight a croft, ty, ones, islands, i'll say to have been coach on full combat alert. as chinese media is flooded by
9:03 pm
footage of a major military preparations, china had really warned washington of serious consequences of the u. s. because versus china will definitely take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguarded sovereignty and territorial integrity. in response to the us, speaker's visit. all the consequences arising there from must be borne by the us side and the taiwan independence, separatist forces. ah,
9:04 pm
he has a quick look at what constitutes china and tie one's military with sources. ty pays total active forces are just a fraction of what stands behind beijing. the number of chinese aircraft, navy, ships and tanks, also well so passes, ty, one's military forces. this is the moment nancy pelosi arrived at sanction a port in taipei, a flight tracking site flight radar. 24 dot come said the number of people following her falling her jet, which almost 3000000 people. a record figure for the service. the u. s. health. because said, have, as it has evidence of the u. s. commitment to support tie when needs democracy, policy has become the highest ranking american official to visit the self hold island in 25 years. the white house, meanwhile, has stated that a dialogue between washington and beijing will be kept open and the u. s. won't be involved in any military conflict with china. the united states will not and does
9:05 pm
not, will not seek and does not want a crisis. we are prepared to manage wellbeing chooses to do at the same time, we will not engage in saber rattling. we will continue to operate in the seas in the skies of the western pacific. as we have done for decades, we will continue to support taiwan. defend a free and open indo pacific and seek to maintain communication with beijing. since it's switched recognition from ty paid to beijing, washington has held an ambivalent position regarding china and taiwan. officially it acknowledges beijing as the earning lifted him at government for the whole of china, including ty, one in line with the one china policy. but this has not prevented us from maintaining unofficial relations with ty pay, and sending military aid to the island. china said that the time has come for us to stop playing the tai one conte. this is a serious violation of the one china principle. there is but one china in the world
9:06 pm
today. one is an inalienable part of china's territory. china strongly urges the united states to stop playing the tie one cart and using tie one to contain china. one china policy has been a definitive aspect of us china relations for the past 40 year. but today's visit by nancy pelosi seems to put all of that on the brink of destruction. the one sign of policy is that the united states acknowledges the peoples republic of china as the one chinese government on the mainland. it does not have diplomatic relations with the government on time one than an advocate, taiwan being peacefully reintegrated with the mainland into one giant. now it appears that despite the fact that nancy pelosi has gone to taiwan, the white house and john kirby and others that us state department are maintaining that the one china policy does in fact, remain intact with us. they are not backing away from that. however,
9:07 pm
we're seeing signals to the contrary, a lot of action by the united states and the lead up to today's big that have indicated that the u. s. the one china policy may be on the brink of being revoked . this is what we heard from a representative of the american institute in taiwan observing recent trends, 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 a beacon to people's around the world who aspire for a more just safe, prosperous and democratic world. now you have the visuals in 5th, they are not wavering on the issue of taiwan. however, it doesn't help when you have the president of the united states making remarks 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. now we see us official giving mixed signals almost as if
9:08 pm
they're not talking to each other before they make their statements or engage in their actions contradictory messages being sent by washington. the world is quite nervous about this as they fear it could push things onto the brain of another global crisis. while top us officials came, washington is speaking by one china policy. us, i'll speak to nancy pelosi to pass the photo session with a tie when needs foreign minister political analyst a quarter. let me says, policies as a to tie one goes against the u. s. one china policy. i think that does, and the statements do contradict the one china policy do contradict official us policy statements. and i think the united states has kind of walked a type rope ever since the recognition of the people's republic of china. i believe that the recognition of the people's republic of china as the sole representative of china and the chinese people, was done less out of respect for common sense and decency. and the republic of
9:09 pm
china is so small, in comparison to the norms of international law, which dictates successive states. clearly states that the people's republic of china should be the only successor states. there is kind of this push for a new cold war. and this policy that we've been, the one china policy is kind of one of the last bastions of peace and tranquility between the united states and china and the united states and the rest of the world. earlier my colleagues always to say, discuss pelosi as a to tie one without correspondence. rachel blevins. hello. she's finally touched down there. you know, even an, even in the face of all of this rhetoric from china pelosi apparently had to make a visit. what are your expectations now that she's here? you know, she released that statement right after she touched down in which she claim that she was there to support were she referred to as taiwan vibrant democracy. she also
9:10 pm
went as far as to say that she does not believe that she is in violation of the one china policy, which is absolutely not how beijing sees it is not what they have worn again and again, when it came to the lead up to this proposed visit now it was also notable that she talked about democracy there because it makes you wonder how do the people of taiwan see this visit. and what we've heard is from people on the ground there who said they are concerned about the long term impacts of policies, visit that will play out and impacted them long after she has returned to the united states. take listen to what was said. it's of all about mercury interest. they use taiwan, they use that your political mom measure to to benefit themselves. they only care about how the government can be holding the power it is in them states. okay. so they just used high one to get their attention for domestic market from
9:11 pm
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. only pelosi will benefit from the elusive visit. that's all. play she visit will attention across the taiwan straits, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. i really hope that the americans will not come around to messed things up so that we can live at peaceful life in all of this. it's also been notable to see how the white house has responded to this. right. you got president biden, who himself has admitted that the u. s. military did not think this trip 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. and then at the same time, you also had secretary of state lincoln who spoke out and said that the decision was entirely up to nancy pelosi herself. and you think about all of the possible ramifications that could come out of this between the world's 2 largest economies.
9:12 pm
and yet you have the white house sitting there saying it is the speaker of the house who is allowed to make this decision and to do something that would lead to the current tensions that we're seeing. and yet when we've looked back at the statements that nancy pelosi is me and she's kind of shrugged, it often downplayed the situation to say the least take a listen to what she said earlier. the president earlier well, earlier in his term talked about a strong emphasis on the asian pacific. he, he has visited, their vice 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 the west coast person, we see that pacific as they're, you know, that they're their home. we're part of that as well. so you can see there, she's almost shrugging it off as if it's no big deal. she's just going to say more of the pacific ocean, and yet we look at all of the ramping of the engines that we're seeing between the
9:13 pm
u. s. and china right now. that makes you wonder if she truly realizes the impact of this visit. that let's take the politicians rhetoric out of the equation for now . rachel, what's the general view in america regarding this whole thing? yeah, there seem to be more questions than answers as to why polos is embarking on a trip like this, right? with everything that's going on in the u. s. right now with the american people who have repeatedly said that they're concerned about skyrocketing gas prices, about inflation. but all of the issues they have going on on their wondering why the speaker of the house is making a trip like this and why she's costing the american taxpayers millions of dollars and security in order to make this possible. and that really is reflected in some of the voices that we're hearing speaking out now. questioning why now, why this trip, and why is this something that blows the embarked on? here's the latest on that. nothing good will come of it. taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit. and
9:14 pm
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. so nancy pelosi goes to ty, pay. 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 here to provoke a war or to start a war. what the hell are you doing here? hello. see? so we've heard a reaction out of asia. we've heard a bit of muffled reaction out of washington d. c. what about the rest of the world? it's rather quiet at the moment. we have any other international reaction to that. yeah, you know, it was interesting because earlier this week when posey was in singapore, the premier, there actually said that the focus needed to be on maintaining stable relations between the united states and china. that that was something that was in all of their best interest in the region. at the same time, we've also heard from mosque our spokesperson for the kremlin,
9:15 pm
spoke out and referred to this trip as extremely provocative, noting that russia stands with china. and also that moscow understands that frustration that is coming to from beijing when it comes to this visit in the fact that the united states has continued to carry out. so certainly a lot of moving parts here, a lot to keep an eye on and these consequences will likely be felt long after this visit is over. you think it's any chance that nancy pelosi could actually get stuck there? because in the coming days, i saw a picture of a map that would china basically publish and said, we're going to be doing these live fire drills on the west side of taiwan on the east side. if i wanted the north and south in the coming days, is it possible that pelosi could actually get stuck that? you know, that's an excellent question that the same time we've seen the u. s. military really focus on trying to build up some sort of buffer zone, but you're right. that is trying to is region that is right in their backyard. and so if they wanted to make it difficult, they arguably could. now the question is going to become what they decide to do, and of course, how the united states decides to react if the by an administration is really going
9:16 pm
to step in and ramp up tensions even more than what they already are at right now. hello scenes, trip to tie one appears not have received much support and western media. as a recent article by the new york times suggest the visit may plunge us into in direct conflict, not only with russia, but also china. us officials are a lot more concerned about ukraine's leadership than they are letting on this ukraine. war is so not over, so not stable, so not without dangerous surprises that can pop out on any given day. given the middle of all this, we're going to risk a conflict with china over taiwan, provokes by an arbitrary and frivolous visit by the speaker of the house. it's cross live now to form a c i, a analysts, larry johnson. larry, you heard there about the new york times article, the office today, hello sees visit to tie one could also prompt asian to start providing military
9:17 pm
assistance for russia in ukraine's war. do you believe that such a scenario is possible? well as possible, you need to understand this article was crafted by thomas friedman. tom is one of the establishment. commentators in washington d. c. got to start with the new york times. now he's a guest columnist, i guess is the best way to describe it. well, i mean, this would be terribly funny if it wasn't so serious because what, what is betrayed by friedman's article is the utter chaos. that is, the biden administration's foreign policy, because they keep sending mixed signals. they say they will back the one find a policy they don't recognize. independence for taiwan. yet, philosophies arrival and all of the other message isn't going to alliance to just that. what friedman is really upset about is he thinks and i think correctly. so
9:18 pm
this ends up being a diversion from the united states for to support the war in ukraine. but what friedman is reflecting as well, is delusion. he is failing to acknowledge that russia is prevailing and the conflict in ukraine. and he hence about it that the support for the lensky is in fact, eroding and washington. i think that is absolutely correct because ukrainians have nothing to show for all of the what does it $87000000000.00 plus that the united states has been pouring into ukraine. ukrainians so far have not been able to capture and hold territory that was held by russia instead just the opposite is. 5 happening, we've see the escalation of casualties on the ukranian side. upwards of a 1000 dine a day. and so,
9:19 pm
and units abandoning their post deserted. so this conflict in washington were washington doesn't really know what it's doing anymore. they can't decide if it's supporting ukraine fully, or if it is the back of their mind, what to support independence for taiwan. but they don't want to get into a conflict with china. is it? it is a confused hot matthews. you've touched on it in terms of the timing of policies as a to tie one in the article here by thomas friedman. he suggests it couldn't be worth given the common tensions of when the world, for example, you're talking about ukraine. would you agree that this is bad timing or absolutely . i agree. it's bad timing, but you also need to look united states is doing a variety of other things in, in tandem with this, the tensions that surge in kosovo and the detaining of serbian citizens. that i believe was provoked by western intelligence agencies. or at least they had
9:20 pm
a wink and a nod and encouragement from the west. and then the biden's announcement that they had killed i, mon walker, re a guy who had been out of the terrorist business candidly for at least the last 8 years. but as if this was some big, bold move to strike to terrorism. so what the united states is doing is moving on a variety of frauds to try to create distractions for the russians. try the camp, the russians into getting involved with other areas. and yet, in this particular case, it showed a complete utter weakness of joe biden, vice president terrorist and the department of defense because all they had to do is tell nancy pelosi no, you're not going. this is not going to help us at this time. it is just underscores, the fact that there's nobody in charge at the white house this, this, these policies are being made up. i think they get up in the morning and it depends on what they have to breakfast before they decide what they're going to do. that
9:21 pm
you mention that it shows the complete weakness of the vine and administration, but do you think at the same time it might be an effort to show that the united states still has strength and is important internationally. if we look, for example, that the united states a suffered a number of reputational fit backs and we spend time some of these fun to losing influence in latin america. and now to saudi arabia. not conceding to us demands in an increase in oil production significantly nice day to little bit like that. evil queen, staring in the mirror. you know, tell me who is the fairest of them all in the mirror just by looking at herself. so yes, i'm the most beautiful that's, that's the situation the united states is in right now with respect to the policy. because we've lost essentially the support of china, of india, of brazil, and, and it's certainly a washer. and so what we're seeing right now is the emergence of a bipolar world or a multi polar world that the united states no longer dominate. so going to taiwan
9:22 pm
to flex a little muscle on an island that even the united states admits belongs to china is you know, a feckless exercise fruitless my view. certain a lot of people that we've been talking to in the last few hours would agree with that few. larry johnson pharmacy i analyst. thank you so much for your time. baseball. me. well, let's come live now to met robson, the former associate foreign minister of new zealand met. thanks so much for joining us here. below. she's currently speaking with the vice president of ty, one and has said that she looked forward to increase quote, parliamentarian cooperation between the 2 countries. what do you think she means by this? oh, clearly it's a publication of china. and if you are talking about cooperation in the atmosphere, that's here at the moment of confrontation, military compensation,
9:23 pm
you're talking about building up the american presence or support of taiwan, which is basically an aircraft carrier for the united states. and it's foreign policy. so business, i'm sure, despite the controversy over who in the white house supported living america ministration, who didn't, must have the okay from president biden and from others. so it's a publication of china and it's part of the whole process that has been laid out in the madrid summit declaration of nature to contain china could, are going to continue the publications of china. and of course, russia as well. the 2 countries being joined together because both represent opposition and a poll of attraction in the world to the united states imperialist ambition.
9:24 pm
she currently be meeting with the vice president and some of the comments that we're getting through is that she said that one of her purposes of the visit is in is to increase into parliamentarian cooperation like we mentioned. and at the same time, she says she comes in peace, friendship and the hook to avoid conflict. she's all to come in to tie one for being one of the freest governments in the world. not naturally, it is expected that china is going to respond in some way. do you think that her visit can whoa lead to serious negative consequences? well, i actually believe the baton is government is responsible in terms of what we're doing in the world that's different from the picture that's being painted even in our own country, a democratic country, new zealand, a constant refrain. the china is aggressive and not buying the international rules, etc. that type of propaganda that she's saying is, relations between the, the parliament, american congress and ty, ones representative body that it's
9:25 pm
a clear interference in china's internal affairs. because there isn't any serious commentator who doesn't recognize it back united states recognizes that taiwan is a problem of china and her story cool issues that have to be sort of the president of china visited her way and said we're having parliamentary relations between china and hawaii. you wouldn't happen, but i think the analogy is clear. so all of it is part of the publication. but behind the publication, of course, lies the enormous military presence of the united states senate at its allies on japan right through to australia now and across the pacific. and from where we are, new zealand policies visit is a hostile old. is it a po, box of one, and part of the whole strategy that's been outlined in the later document. 2022 to
9:26 pm
can continue the aggression as aggression against both china and of course, the russian federation. in this meeting now with the vice president, she's made the comment that she's looking forward to discussing ways that they can work together. what can china do to america economically, to put across just how unhappy it is with us for that? medina has an enormous economic presence in the world. we know that in new zealand sell biggest trade, papa. and that's what's causing trouble because new zealand allied itself to the united states pushed against china and was backing off from that. now, the government's got quite scared. but the ramifications for that. and so it should . but china has a number of weapons as legitimate economic workmans to, to use, including with taiwan, because taiwan and time as economies interlinked. and it's been part of the process
9:27 pm
of a peaceful relationship between the province of taiwan and china. now we have a situation where the united states is backing off of the legitimate situation of taiwan being recognized as a country, not a separate entity with a special historical situation which needs to be understood to wrapping it up as an independent country that's facing chinese. the question was, of course, not just the person situation, but go right back to the seizure of taiwan by the the nationalists forces of china after the fee to $949.00 in the communist revolution. and the continued aggression that's been used against china because such us know that it's happening that's been going off a very long time. but of course, america had backed off in the period up to the initial recognition of china as the
9:28 pm
rest of the world. so china has many, many weapons at his disposal. well, i mean, very konami can diplomatic weapons to oppose this and presume they'll take considered reflection on or if they have to, they have to respond. they have to stop this publication because be passengers. this is the constant aggression from the united states. so trying to sales through waters claim by china and military exercises as a person one going on back at the moment, which is preparation for an invasion of china. excellent in site, and thank you for your perspective. and we really appreciate your time, the format, associate foreign minister of new zealand. and while that brings us to the end of the news for this hour, we'll be back in 30 minutes with more fuse and news in for as we follow this very
9:29 pm
important story. thanks so much for joining us for me and the news team here in moscow. she has for now ah, the so called collective west is at war with russia using ukraine as a proxy. the west has made it clear once a russia that is weaker and isolated on the world stage. today these attempts have ended in failure. in fact, the opposite has happened. the west is weaker and isolated. with
9:30 pm
the welcome to oils apart, the american approach to the world could be reduced to one bumper sticker. it well could be this perception is reality going in the early ninety's by the come, the republican strategist lee asked what it made. i'm gonna use a bull codes and did a truth, but nonetheless, through very effective in securing the presidential victories of ronald reagan and george h. w. bush is on how big is the gap between american perception and will reality? well, to discuss that i'm now joined by lou sheen. an anchor with china state run. see on channel. she needs a great pleasure for me to talk to you. i'm such a big fan of your work. thank you very much for making the time for me. thank you for the invitation. yes, i come from c g t n, we call ourselves the internet.
