2:02 am
ty ones defense ministry has already accused mainland china of immediately encroaching on the islands territory and threatened to respond. china hasn't yet commented on those allegations. yes, some of the latest footage shaped by chinese media. 21 chinese warplanes pos to tie ones, aid defense identification zone. and according to basing military sources drills will include a non nuclear missile launches from the sea. east of the island territory that include alive, fire exercises, and coordination between warships and find to a coughed tie, one's islands. our states have been put on for combat alert. as chinese media are flooded by foot sheet of alleged military preparations, china had already warned washington of serious consequences of us because visit with him in china will definitely take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguarded sovereignty and territorial integrity. in response to the u. s. speakers visit,
2:03 am
all the consequences arising there from must be borne by the us side and the taiwan independence, separatist forces. ah, he has a quick look at what constitutes china. anti one's military resources. type pays total active forces all just a fraction of what stands behind beijing. the number of chinese aircraft, navy, ships and tanks. also wealth passes, tie ones, military forces. while top us officials have repeatedly stated that washington doesn't support taiwanese independence, nancy pelosi being
2:04 am
a key official herself met with the president of ty, one and received an award from the leader on behalf of the us congress for her contribution to us taiwan relations. earlier, pelosi plates, corporation and full support for taiwanese authorities during the meeting in parliament. would we be? we want to increase entre parliamentary cooperation and dialogue. and we do so at a time when our president has put forth an asian pacific initiative, which we support. and we want to be specific in terms of how we work with taiwan in that regard. 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 confrontation, you're talking about building up the american presence or support of taiwan, which is basically at aircraft carrier for the united states and foreign policy. so
2:05 am
visit, i'm sure, despite the controversy over who in the white house supported the miracle 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 later to contain china could, can, 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. this is the moment nancy pelosi arrived at function a port in type pe, the flight tracking sight flight rate on 24, dot com for the number of people following her jet, which almost 3000000
2:06 am
a record figure for the service the us house because her as it has evidence of the u. s. commitment to support tie when he's democracy. pelosi 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 that the us does not want a crisis with china. united states will not and does 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. meanwhile, nancy pelosi seems to see nothing special in her visit. when it comes to china's
2:07 am
reaction, our delegation came here to send an unequivocal message. america stand with taiwan. while china has stood in the way of taiwan participating and going to certain meetings that they understand, that they will not stand in the way of people coming to taiwan as a show of friendship of support. but also a source of learning about how we can work together better in collaboration. so it, yeah, no i, i don't. i think that that they made a big fuss because on speaker, i guess, i don't know if that was a reason or an excuse because they didn't say anything. when the men came. however, it's the us inconsistency of china's territorial integrity that has become a cause of contention for beijing. since it's switch recognition from taipei to beijing, washington has held an ambivalent position on china anti one. it officially acknowledges
2:08 am
beijing as the only legitimate government for the whole of china, including ty, one in line with the one china policy. but this is not proven to the u. s. for maintaining unofficial relations with taipei and sending military aid to the island . china now accuses the u. s. of stirring trouble in the region. the open political provocation has aroused the fury of the chinese people and is opposed by the whole international community. this again proves that some us politicians have become the troublemakers of china. us relations and the u. s. has become the number one savage or of the peace and stability of the taiwan strait. 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 china policy is that the united states acknowledges the people's republic of china as the one chinese government on the mainland that does not have diplomatic relations with
2:09 am
the government on time. one then an advocate, taiwan being peacefully re integrated 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, we're seeing signals to the contrary, a lot of action by the united states and the lead up to today's big of that have indicated that the us, 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 is a beacon to peoples around the world who aspire for a more just safe,
2:10 am
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 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 last official giving mixed signals almost as if they're not talking to each other before they make their statement or engage in their actions contradictory messages being sent by washington. the world is quite nervous about this as they be, or it could push things onto the brink of another global crisis. to see independent arms control and conflict consulted, says that policies visit is an ill timed publication, which president by the hopes will be soon forgotten. the idea of having a one china policy and then leaving it good and well alone. maintaining the strategic ambiguity has been the backbone of us policy for decades,
2:11 am
and it's largely worked and taiwan is prospered under that policy. so the idea that nancy pelosi somehow needs to go in and rectify a situation that's been working just fine, is bizarre. this was an unnecessary and thoughtless provocation based on the actions of someone who won't be the speaker of the house much longer at age. 82, even if the democrats managed to hold on to the house of representatives, november elections, if this is about or putting your footprints in the sands of history, it's remarkably, the old time. i think it's extraordinary that we're seeing a distancing of the us administration of the executive function in the u. s. to, with the legislative function is represented by speaker pelosi. i think it's, it's the same democratic party in the us controlling both bodies at the moment. although that may not last for much longer, but the fact that they're saying she's on her own, it's actually, and she can do it. she likes is a total abrogation of the executive functions responsibility to make an execute
2:12 am
foreign policy there, handing over the foreign policy on china and taiwan to the speaker of the house of representatives. i expect biting to drop this like a rock. as soon as she's back in the, in the us, he's going to try and forget about this as soon as people let him weather people do, let him forget about it as another question. earlier, my colleague, voice to shave, discuss policy, says that to tie one with our correspondent rachel blevins. hello. she's finally touched down there. you know, even an, even in the face of all of this rhetoric from china. hello, she apparently had to make her visit. what are your expectations now that she's here? you know, she released that statement right after she touched down in which she claimed that she was there to support were she referred to as taiwan vibrant democracy. she also 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,
2:13 am
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 about mimicry, interest, they use taiwan. they, they use that you political mom measure to, to benefit himself. 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 our attention for domestic market from good hello see 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
2:14 am
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 mess 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. 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
2:15 am
statements that nancy pelosi is me and she's kind of shrugged it off and down, played 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, they're, they're 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 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?
2:16 am
yeah, there seem to be more questions than answers as to why pelosi 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 at home. they're 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 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 nuclear armed russia and a nuclear armed china at the same time. so nancy pelosi goes to ty,
2:17 am
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 in global war, are you 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 the 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 moscow a spokesperson for the kremlin, 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 from beijing when it comes to this visit in the fact
2:18 am
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 is 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 of taiwan in 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, arguably. 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 to step in and ramp tensions even more than what they already are at right now. when it's crossed to political analysts.
2:19 am
and john george, and thanks so much for joining us here in our tea. let's just 5 minutes to study and evolve. has stated that he's that, that creates to quote, a flash point out of nothing. do you agree that this is a provocative news by the us? or is china going the side of the portion? i think that surgery love rob is not too far off base on this. at the same time it does appear that the chinese are blowing out a proportion. one visit by an american politician does not an invasion make prime. aphasia does not threaten chinese security. congressional delegations have been there before vice president biden has been there before. in fact, president nixon went to beijing before the year before washington recognized gave a base beijing a diplomatic recognition when we thought that china was the rightful leader of taiwan was right. leader of china. i think both sides need to kind of take deep breath and calm down. i agree with one of your previous guess, however, that this is a political stand by pillows issue long been a china hawk and she is about to leave the speakership. and this is about her
2:20 am
distracting from some of the problems and washing of the democrats are having and trying to redefine her legacy. so i think everybody took a deep breath here. the realize that not much has really changed as a result of our trip. you really think something that that can help her redefine her legacy. it seems very late in her career and it certainly has a lot of people upset to save money. i don't think so. i mean politicians of the twilight of their career and oftentimes to try to do. bolden dramatic and sometimes desperate things are the democrats agenda is basically collapse in congress. they're about to get basically beat down in the elections. and they know that and policy will be known as the speaker who lead that democratic congress of the democratic administration and produced absolutely nothing. so i think there is a little bit of a look at me, look at me by nancy pelosi here. and the administration is not too wild about it, but they are the administration is really to feckless and they've kind of seated as
2:21 am
one of your other analysts and suggested diplomacy to mrs. pelosi when in fact, that's an executive branch function. but it's meant earlier with the deputy speak of taiwan is parliament. and she said she looks forward to increased parliamentarian compilation between the 2 governments. what do you make by that statement? however, i know i'm not sure there is really such a thing on parliament cooperation. i'd have to see that defined before, i know what that meant right now. that sounds like a bunch of watching gobbledygook. you know whether or not, i guess the taiwanese parliament comes to visit dc and various congressmen go to taipei. what's new about that that's been happening here for decades, so that just does that, does that seem? sounds like a bunch of gobbledygook to me. well, here are some more comments you made. i mean, she followed that meeting with time once president and they, she said to quote, now more than is an american funded galaxy with taiwan is crucial and went on to say that americans determination to preserve democracy in ty, ty,
2:22 am
one is iron clad. how will beijing do you think respond to these comments? ok, that's a great question. this is when this gets serious, is because this is signaling. i think this, the administration of agree, concurs in this, is that america is on the side of taiwan. america is going to support i want to tie ones consisted in the, you know, autonomy as it were, even if they're not going to support independence. the united states probably is not going to allow democracy, would be taken away by from the taiwanese by force. and that's where this could get really sticky for in the, in the south china sea, into what we looking happening. nice. next. what trajectory do you think china us relations we'll take off to policy the timeline later today? well, this may be a case of the flea driving the dog american relations with beijing have been deteriorating for some time. i think people look back and say that this was an
2:23 am
important moment or part of that. but when, in fact, this is more of a symptom than the disease. so here you have a politician, nancy pelosi wanting to look a certain way, redefined her legacy. but that really isn't what's driving the downward trajectory in sino american relations. those are being driven by other issues and this is certainly going to be looked at as a big symbol. but a symbol more than substance. do you think police? he's going against the one china policy officially committed to by the united states in 1979 with the script. and if yes, what is the purpose for the timing of the trip and the statement she's making aside from the legacy you mentioned earlier, she might be speaking to establish. i don't think this represents any substance of departure from america, so called strategic ambiguity. and one china policy congressional delegations have been going to tie one for some time newt gingrich, where 1979 other congressmen were not in leadership have been going. so as long as
2:24 am
the definition of one china policy means that the u. s. does not recognize taiwanese independence and does not recognize taiwan diplomatically. that is really the definition of a one china policy. and so unless that river is crossed there really, this isn't a departure in substance from previously stated american policy. and that's certainly something we have heard from a number of guests saying that it's largely symbolic. more than anything else. don jordan, political analyst, a pleasure to have you with us today. thank you for your time. my pleasure. both. i'm at the turmoil china has imposed sanctions. against to taiwanese funds, which aging accuses of supporting separatism and a smear campaign against beijing. meanwhile, the ramifications of policies visit have already been felt in local financial markets. she's fell in semiconductor manufacturers in tie one, which is home to some of the largest such companies in the world. overall, taiwanese stocks dropped about 2 percent,
2:25 am
which is the biggest fall in 3 weeks. the controversial visit of the us house eco brought down the value of a number of industry giants. in addition, the stock for was not only felt anti one, but also with other global semiconductor manufacturers. tom long go. geopolitical and market analyst and publisher of the gold goats and guns newsletter says washington is deliberately provoking beijing as part of an economic pressure campaign. the visible philosophy is interesting because it just feels like so much theater to me and but at the same time it is very serious. right. the chinese are vickie, very seriously in the us knows exactly what it's doing in terms of provocation. does entire affair with policy is actually the giant boss to get the chinese to over commit, or to overreact to the situation. so now we can start putting up the sanctions wall around china and the same way. and that, that we put up or around russia, which is clearly these are lead ups to a wider conflict in many ways i want is
2:26 am
a single point of failure. and he's trip to tie one appears not have received much support in the western media. and as a recent article by the new york times suggests, the visit may plunge the us into in direct conflict, not only with russia, but now also with 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 are going to risk a conflict with china over taiwan, provokes by an arbitrary and frivolous visit by the speaker of the house. all of this would be terribly funny if it wasn't so serious. this ends up being a diversion from the united states offered to support the war in ukraine. what is betrayed by friedman's article is the utter chaos. that is the biden administration's foreign policy because they keep sending mix signals. they say
2:27 am
they will back the one china policy. they don't recognize independence for taiwan. yet policies arrival and all of the other message that's going alliance suggests that so this conflict in washington were washington doesn't really know what it's doing anymore. it can't decide if it's supporting ukraine fully. or if it was in the back or their mind, what to support independents for taiwan, but they don't want to get into a conflict with china. is it? it is a confused hot mess. well that brings us to the end of this bulletin will be back in half an hour. thank you so much for joining us with coming to you from moscow for me and the team. the bye for now. oh, i use
2:28 am
use ah. with
2:29 am
oh no, no one else shows the wrong one. i just don't know if he has to say proud becomes the answer to an engagement. it was betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah ah hello in welcome to cross stock, were all things are considered on peter lavelle the so called collective west is at war with russia using ukraine as
2:30 am
a proxy. the west has made it clear at once of russia that is weaker and isolated on the world stage. to date, these attempts have ended in failure. in fact, the opposite has happened. the west is weaker and isolated. ah, i cross sucking the wes miscalculations. i'm joined by my guest, john browley in new york. he is a political analyst, as well as a former foreign correspondent in russia in washington. we have michael maloof. he is a former pentagon seniors security policy analyst, and america. ashley cross to martin j. he's an award winning journalist and commentator or a gentleman cross sack rolls in fact that music and jumping time he won. and i always appreciate. let me go to michael in washington. first, let me, he saw from my introduction, i kind of wanted to focus it on russia bed down the news flow is kind of interrupting this error. shine is very much a in the news flow, taiwan. so.
