Chinese reaction to Pelosi’s visit ‘over the top’ but ‘not unexpected’

Sky News political editor Andrew Clennell says Australia thinks China’s reaction to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan “was not unexpected” but “exaggerated”.

He said the Australian government’s approach was not to publicly comment on Pelosi’s controversial visit.

“But the government is concerned about the activities that occurred in retaliation and that something could go astray,” Clennell said.
