HONG KONG (Reuters) – China on Monday lodged a “stern representation” over the visit of the governor of the U.S. state of Indiana to Taiwan, its foreign ministry said in a statement.

Governor Eric Holcomb is making the third trip to Taiwan this month by a U.S. delegation after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited briefly, infuriating China, which views Taiwan as its own territory.
