The United States will "pay the price" if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visits Taiwan during her Asia trip, Bejing said. However, hitting back, the White House said that China is overreacting towards Pelosi's visit saying she has every right to visit the self-ruled island despite Beijing viewing it as a highly provocative challenge. Meanwhile, Taiwan has also issued statements saying that it is fully prepared to defend itself. Taiwan's military said it is "determined, capable and confident" that it can protect the island against threats by China over a potential visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "We are meticulously preparing various plans and appropriate troops will be dispatched to respond". Amid all this, 21 Chinese fighter jets entered the Taiwanese straits.
