(Washington Times) China sanctioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday and said it will stop working with the U.S. on climate change, drug enforcement and some military coordination because the high-profile Democrat visited Taiwan over its objections.

The foreign ministry in Beijing said the eight “countermeasures” also include a suspension of cooperation on transnational crimes or repatriating illegal immigrants.

Chinese officials said talks between regional commanders and military maritime consultations would be canceled.
China announced the steps after conducting aggressive military exercises near Taiwan, which it considers to be a breakaway province.

Additionally, the foreign ministry said it would levy unspecific sanctions against Mrs. Pelosi and her“immediate family members” in accordance with Chinese law.

Mrs. Pelosi, of California, visited Taiwanese dignitaries this week and praised the island for serving as a model of democracy in contrast to mainland China.

She also hailed cooperation on economic matters, particularly in the tech sector, but said America’s “one China” policy would not change.
