Nancy Pelosi has become the most senior US politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
The United States House speaker spent less than a day on the self-ruled island.
But China, which claims Taiwan as part of its territory, called the trip a direct challenge to its sovereignty.
America’s third-most powerful politician was undeterred by Beijing’s threats, saying Washington is committed to preserving Taiwan’s democracy.
China is responding with live-fire military drills and an import ban on Taiwanese goods.
So, how will Taipei and Washington deal with the consequences?
