In response for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s travel to Taiwan, China has suspended cooperation with the US in a number of sectors, including conversation between senior-level military commanders and climate negotiations, the Chinese government said on Friday.

China’s foreign ministry also said that, among eight specific actions, it will stop cooperation with Washington on the prevention of cross-border crime and drug trafficking, as well as on the repatriation of illegal migrants.

China also canceled a scheduled bilateral discussion on a maritime military security mechanism in a statement issued just after Pelosi departed Japan on the last leg of her Asian visit.

In reaction to her “vicious” and “provocative” conduct, Beijing declared separately that it would personally censure Pelosi and her immediate family.

Pelosi’s short travel to self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as its own, enraged Beijing and prompted extraordinary Chinese military maneuvers in the seas and air surrounding the island.
