AP, Beijing: China has suspended talks with the US on global warming, military issues and anti-drug measures to protest US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan .
While fiercely opposing Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China had warned the United States to face the consequences. After that, China took that step on Friday. China claims that Taiwan is its territory. After Pelosi’s visit, China began military exercises in the vicinity of Taiwan. China’s Foreign Ministry said China had canceled talks at the level of divisional commanders and senior military officials, including talks on military and maritime security between the two countries. Discussions and cooperation on the repatriation of illegal travelers, international crime, illegal drugs and global warming have been suspended.
