‘Not a price we are going to pay,’ U.S. Congressman says on ceding control to China after Taiwan trip

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday following U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan last week, U.S. Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill. 8th District) said “we want to make sure what happened in Ukraine does not happen with regard to the Southeast Asian region, specifically Taiwan.” He added that “if the cost of avoiding these types of provocative measures is to cede control… that is not a price we are going to pay.”
