China halted natural sand exports to Taiwan and some fish and fruit from the island on Wednesday following US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s arrival on the island.

The sand export announcement, made in a statement by China’s Ministry of Commerce, said the move was based on provisions of related law but gave no further details.

China’s General Administration of Customs said in a separate statement that the suspension of imports was due to excessive pesticide residue detected “multiple times” on products since last year, as well as on some frozen fish packages that tested positive for coronavirus in June.
