Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council on Thursday called U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan a "malicious provocation."

Iran PressEurope: During an interview with RIA Novosti, Dmitry Medvedev noted that the United States used ambiguous rhetoric, claiming adherence to the "One-China" policy, while its actions have shown other motives.

Under the "One-China" policy, nearly all countries across the globe recognize Beijing's sovereignty over Chinese Taipei, including the US, which has no formal diplomatic ties with the territory but continues to support its anti-China stance and supply it with massive amounts of armaments.

Medvedev said the visit was a deliberate provocation intended to undermine international security in Asia.
