U.S.-China confrontation will affect global economy, Russia warns

Moscow, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) A confrontation between the United States and China over Taiwan will inevitably damage the situation in the global economy, the head of the economic cooperation department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Dmitri Birichevski, warned.

Birichevski recalled that the situation around Taiwan worsened after the visit of the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, last August 3, despite China’s protests. This was the first high-level White House visit to the island in 25 years.

In the midst of this scenario, President Joe Biden’s administration distanced itself from the controversial trip, claiming that politics makes its own decisions.

However, as a sign of Washington’s pugnaciousness, in just two weeks, on Sunday, August 14, the second delegation of U.S. congressmen arrived in Taipei.

Ties between China and the island of Taiwan were severed in 1949, after the forces of the nationalist Kuomintang Party, led by Chiang Kai-shek, suffered a defeat in the civil war against the Communist Party and moved to the archipelago.

Relations between Taiwan and mainland China were re-established only on a business and informal level in the late 1980s.

The Chinese government’s fundamental policy towards the island is peaceful reunification under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
