CHINA is “in a bad mood” after Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan and is focused on “punishing” Taipey as they might be “too afraid to punish the US directly yet”, warned expert Michael Pillsbury.

Hudson Institute Director for China Strategy Michal Pillsbury said Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has left China “in a bad much” and they are now in rush “to punish somebody”. Referring to China’s latest decision to stop sales to Taiwan in response to Pelosi’s visit, he added China will start by punishing Taiwan as he forecasted they might be going to wait for a more direct confrontation with the US “until they get a lot stronger in a few years”.
