Beijing/Taipei: China’s People’s Liberation Army has begun military exercises including a live fire in the waters and airspace around the island of Taiwan.
According to Chinese state media, the large-scale military activity will include live fire and other military exercises, which will begin at 12 noon local time on Thursday and continue until noon next Sunday. According to media sources, Chinese military exercises will take place in some places only a few kilometers away from the coastal area of Taiwan.
Troops began in Taiwan after the US representative Nancy Bridge on behalf of China’s extraordinary troops. His leadership has been criticized by China, which has also recorded protests calling for the US ambassador.
China had warned before Nancy Pelosi’s visit that it would mobilize the military if US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. According to the spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Office, Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan is a challenge to China’s sovereignty and independence, in which case China will face a strong response.
On the other hand, Taiwan has condemned the Chinese military exercises, calling it a violation of the United Nations rules. Taiwan has warned that this large-scale military activity by China could pose a threat to regional security. The spokesperson of the Ministry of Defense has described it as a challenge to the international system in the press conference.
