The Facts

On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan.
Pelosi’s visit comes amid numerous warnings from the Chinese government of “serious consequences.”
Pelosi is the most senior US official to visit the self-governing island since 1997, describing her visit as vital to the defense of democracy.
Pelosi was presented with the ‘Order of Propitious Clouds’ to symbolize America’s strong and enduring friendship with Taiwan.
In the wake of China’s vow to respond militarily to the visit, 21 PLA aircraft reportedly entered Taiwanese air space during Pelosi’s visit, according to the Taiwanese Defense Ministry.
