MOSCOW - US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent visit to Taiwan is part of a deliberate US strategy to destabilize the situation in the region, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Taiwan trip "a brazen demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries and for international obligations" and a carefully planned provocation

He noted that the visit wasn't just carried out by one "irresponsible politician," but was part of an underlying strategy, through which the United States was seeking to destabilize the situation in the Asia-Pacific region and the whole world.
