MACAO - China's Macao Special Administrative Region government on Wednesday expressed firm opposition to and strong condemnation on the visit of Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, to China's Taiwan region.

The current US administration has on multiple occasions made the commitment of adhering to the one-China principle, the Macao SAR government said in a statement. However, some recent remarks and actions by the US side run counter to the commitment, it added

Pelosi's visit to Taiwan grossly interferes with China's internal affairs, severely undermines China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, wantonly tramples on the one-China principle, seriously threatens peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits, and severely damages China-US relations, the Macao SAR government said in a statement.
