KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has arrived in Singapore, kicking off her Asian tour as questions swirled over a possible stop in Taiwan that has fueled tension with Beijing. A person familiar with the matter confirmed that Pelosi landed in the city-state before dawn. A foreign ministry spokesperson said Pelosi will call on Singapore President Halimah Yacob and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. She is also expected to attend a cocktail reception with the American Chamber of Commerce. Pelosi will also visit Malaysia, South Korea and Japan. She didn’t confirm reports that she might visit Taiwan, amid strong warnings from China against meddling in its affairs with the island democracy that is claimed by Beijing as its own territory.
