Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, a BBC commentator, said that this was the highest warning warning in China to the United States.

On the US side, President Biden affirmed that Washington did not seek to upset the relationship between the two countries, and warned that both sides should not do so.

President Biden emphasized that the US policy has not changed and Washington strongly opposed anyone who changed the status quo or weakened peacefully and stabilized in the Taiwan Strait, Karine Jean-Pierre, Secretary of the Press House.

In May, Biden announced he would use force to protect Taiwan if the island was attacked.

The statement of President Biden then received response from the Taiwanese leaders as well as those with tough stance in Washington, but stumbled fiercely from Beijing.

The tension continues to increase after much information that US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi will visit Taiwan in August. Although there is no official announcement, Ms. Pelosi has asked other National Assembly members to join the trip.

Information about Ms. Pelosi's trip has sparked a wave of fierce opposition from China, when Beijing warned the US would bear the consequences if the Chairman of the House of Representatives visited Taiwan, even leaving an open action.

This threat has made the Pentagon right to plan for military measures to ensure the security for the visit if Pelosi decided to leave.

In An Hoang period, a professor of international relations at the People's University of Beijing, said that these warnings were released to prevent the US House of Representatives from coming to Taiwan, but that did not mean that China would use strong measures.

China clearly wanted Pelosi to cancel the visit, but Beijing certainly did not want to have military conflict with the US at this time, he said.

However, Professor Thoi said the atmosphere between the two countries was much worse than in March, when the two leaders talked to each other.

If Ms. Pelosi visits Taiwan, it will really push everything to the edge of the verge and will break the safety limit of the relationship, Dr. Lu Xiang, the research director at Hong Kong's Chinese Institute, one.

In addition to the issue of Taiwan, US -China leaders also discussed tariffs released by the US under President Donald Trump for Chinese goods.

China also proved to be sensitive to the new US National Assembly's bill to promote the semiconductor industry, in order to reduce dependence on Beijing and other production parties.

When the two leaders only issued warnings without finding a common voice after the phone talk for more than two hours, observers could not help but worry about the tensions of the US - China continued to escalate.
