China’s foreign minister Wang Yi on Tuesday condemned the “deplorable betrayal” of the United States amid reports that Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the US House, would visit Taiwan.

The behavior of the US “will damage its credibility at the international level,” Wang said, according to the foreign ministry.

“The ‘one China’ principle is a consensus of the international community” and the “political foundation of China’s relations with other countries,” Wang said.
