Taiwan says China is carrying out ‘possible mock attack’ – POLITICO

Taipei said Chinese military drills involving naval and air forces that Beijing carried out on Saturday could be a “possible mock attack” on the island.

The operations are part of unprecedented military drills Beijing launched in retaliation for US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. China has also suspended climate and military talks with the United States.

Taiwan Ministry of Defense said On Saturday on Twitter, he jammed planes and ships after several Chinese military “craft” crossed the median line separating its territorial waters from mainland China.

In a separate statement, the ministry said it had “detected several batches of Chinese aircraft and warships operating around the Taiwan Strait in the morning, some of which crossed the middle line of the strait.”

Pelosi visited the self-governing island – which China considers its territory – earlier this week, sparking anger in Beijing. On Friday, China sanctioned Pelosi and his close family. The Chinese Foreign Ministry called Pelosi’s trip “a flagrant interference in China’s internal affairs” and a “blatant provocation”.
