This article attempts to explore the repercussions of Nancy Pelosi’s ‘unofficial visit’ to the self-ruled island of Taiwan, on the US-China-Taiwan triangular equation. The article also addresses the potential causes and consequences of American and Chinese provocations in the Taiwan Strait (by contextualizing it within their foreign policies), and critically examines the discourse which seeks to draw parallels between the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the Chinese dream of National Rejuvenation by means of reunification with Taiwan. Finally, the article discusses a way forward for the US, China and Taiwan to resolve contentions and negotiate peace without the use of overmilitarized foreign policies.
Keywords: Taiwan, China, Cross-Strait Reunification, Pelosi Visit, Strategic Ambiguity
