China on Friday (5) said it was cancelling several defence meetings and suspending key climate talks with the United States after a visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan this week.

China will “suspend the China-US climate change talks” and nix plans for a call between military leaders as well as two security meetings, the Chinese foreign ministry said, citing Pelosi’s “disregard of China’s strong opposition and stern representations” on the Taiwan visit.
