Chinese military drills have invaded Taiwan’s territory in what is seen as a direct response to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the region.
The military drills were announced by Chinese state media with a picture of a map being tweeted identifying the areas being used for such exercises.
The move from Beijing comes after US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called Taiwan “one of the freest societies in the world”.
According to the Defence Ministry, the military exercises by China have amounted to a blockade of Taiwan’s sea and air space.
The Defence Ministry in Taiwan said that China has broken rules implemented by the United Nations and added that it would counter any breaches of its territory.
