Pelosi landed at Taipei's Songshan Airport at around 10.45pm local time on Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking American official to visit the Asian country in 25 years.
The world is now bracing for China's response after Chinese leader Xi Jinping warned US President Joe Biden during a call last week that "whoever plays with fire will get burnt" if they allow Pelosi to land in Taiwan.
China has repeatedly warned Pelosi not to make the trip, while the US has warned Beijing not to turn the moment into a military crisis.
“There is no reason for Beijing to turn a potential visit consistent with longstanding US policy into some sort of crisis or conflict, or use it as a pretext to increase aggressive military activity in or around the Taiwan Strait,” John Kirby, a National Security Council spokesman, told reporters on Monday.
On Tuesday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said they would "closely follow Pelosi's itinerary" and take "firm and powerful measures to safeguard China's sovereignty".
"We closely follow Pelosi’s itinerary. If the US insists on going its own way, China will take firm and powerful measures to safeguard China’s sovereignty and security interests," spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
The sharp warning came a day after the Foreign Ministry said that the People’s Liberation Army “won’t sit idly by” if Pelosi lands in their backyard.
Beijing is furious and has threatened to take action as it accuses the US of provoking them over the breakaway island, which the Communist Party has long claimed belongs to China.
