Taiwan FM defends US Speaker Pelosi's visit

Taiwan's foreign minister has defended US Speaker Nancy Pelosi's brief but controversial trip to the island in an exclusive interview with the BBC, SIA cites the foreign media.

Joseph Wu condemned the large-scale military exercises that China began around the island on Thursday.

He said Ms Pelosi's visit was "extremely significant" and China's response would not stop democratic politicians being invited to Taipei.

Mr Wu also warned that China's territorial aims go far beyond Taiwan.

For the past six years Mr Wu has been the public face of Taiwan's campaign for greater international recognition. He negotiated Nancy Pelosi's visit, and he is now dealing with its rather frightening aftermath.

But Taiwan's foreign minister is not about to apologise. "The whole point of Ms Pelosi's trip was to bring attention to this often forgotten and little understood island" the FM noted.
