The declaration was made in response to remarks made by US Indo-Pacific Coordinator Kurt Campbell on Friday, who claimed that China had “overreacted” to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. 

According to a statement from the foreign ministry,China’s “unprovoked military and economic intimidation” has “further enhanced the unity and resilience of the worldwide democratic camp.”

China has maintained its threat of use of force, according to Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, despite the fact that Beijing’s largest-ever military exercises around the island in response to Pelosi’s visit last week appeared to be winding down.

Meanwhile, India on Friday expressed its concern over the biggest ever military exercises by the Chinese army in the vicinity of Taiwan.

The MEA spokesperson further said that India’s relevant policies are well-known and consistent. He added that they do not require reiteration.
