LONDON - Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Tuesday of whipping up tensions in Asia, describing a visit to Taiwan by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a "thoroughly planned provocation".

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit this month to Taiwan was "not just a trip by a single irresponsible politician, but part of a purposeful, conscious US strategy to destabilize and sow chaos in the region and the world", Russia President Valdimir Putin said

In a speech to a Moscow security conference, Putin also cited the AUKUS security pact between Australia, Britain and the United States as evidence of Western attempts to build a NATO-style bloc in the Asia-Pacific region.

Speaker Pelosi's visit this month to Taiwan was "not just a trip by a single irresponsible politician, but part of a purposeful, conscious US strategy to destabilize and sow chaos in the region and the world", Putin said.

"We also see that the collective West is seeking to extend its bloc system to the Asia-Pacific region by analogy with NATO in Europe. For this purpose, aggressive military-political alliances are being formed, such as AUKUS and others."
