China suspends dialogue with US military on climate change

In retaliation for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China has suspended cooperation with the United States in many areas, including dialogue between senior military commanders and climate negotiations.

China’s foreign ministry said Friday it would suspend cooperation with Washington among eight measures on preventing cross-border crime and drug trafficking and repatriating illegal immigrants.

In a statement issued shortly after Pelosi left Japan on the final leg of her Asian tour, China also canceled a scheduled bilateral meeting on the Maritime Military Security Mechanism.

Beijing separately announced that it would personally sanction Pelosi and her immediate family in response to her “vicious” and “provocative” behavior.

Pelosi’s brief visit to self-administered Taiwan this week has infuriated Beijing and sparked an unprecedented scale of Chinese military exercises in the waters and air around the island.
