The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that the punitive measures are also directed at the immediate relatives of the congresswoman, without specifying what the penalties are.

Chinese penalties typically involve bans on entering the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as restrictions on doing business for companies or institutions affiliated with the sanctioned persons.

The Foreign Ministry argued that Pelosi visited Taiwan without caring about China’s concerns and opposition, which constituted a serious display of foreign interference. It also defined the visit as a provocation that undermined the One China principle, national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In addition to sanctioning the US legislator, Beijing reacted to her trip by conducting military exercises around Taiwan for four days, punitive measures against individuals, companies and organizations accused of promoting separatism, and halting some imports and exports to and from the island.

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, said on Wednesday that Pelosi’s visit was not a matter of democracy, but of China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. She also accused her of leading a political farce and assured that Beijing will proceed with more “decisive, energetic and effective” countermeasures.
