US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is expected to visit Taiwan on Tuesday evening in defiance of Chinese threats, Bloomberg reports.

China, which regards Taiwan as part of its territory, has promised an unspecified military response to any Pelosi visit that risks sparking a crisis between the world’s biggest economies.

Taiwan faced cyberattacks ahead of Pelosi’s arrival.

“The military is determined, confident and capable of ensuring national security,” the statement added.
