House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised that the United States and its allies would not let China encircle Taiwan.

The top lawmaker delivered the statement in Tokyo on the last stop of her highly publicized East Asia trip, marked by a controversial visit to Taiwan. Pelosi condemned the Chinese government, which has levied threats over the visit and carried drills around the self-governing Democracy it claims for its own, saying Beijing would not be allowed to stop U.S. officials from visiting the island off the east coast of China nor isolate it.

"We will not allow them to isolate Taiwan," Pelosi defiantly declared on Friday night local time.

Pelosi's visit to Japan ends her tour of the region, during which she also toured Singapore, Malaysia, and South Korea. She made the trip with five other members of Congress.

A different statement from foreign ministers of the G-7 — the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the European Union — calls on “all parties to remain calm, exercise restraint, act with transparency, and maintain open lines of communication to prevent misunderstanding.”

“We are concerned by recent and announced threatening actions by the People’s Republic of China (PRC), particularly live-fire exercises and economic coercion, which risk unnecessary escalation,” the statement said. “There is no justification to use a visit as pretext for aggressive military activity in the Taiwan Strait. It is normal for legislators from our countries to travel internationally. The PRC’s escalatory response risks increasing tensions and destabilizing the region.”
