The US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan prompted sanctions against her as per the statement of the Chinese foreign ministry. The Chinese communist government has been shaken by the visit of a US diplomat to Taiwan, which China considers a separatist nation and intends to annex.
For the second day in a row, China launched ballistic missiles at Taiwan and stationed warships and fighter jets nearby. As Chinese warships reportedly approached Taiwan’s coastlines within 12 miles, the People’s Liberation Army proclaimed “no-go risk” zones all around the island. The Chinese military reportedly flew “more than 100 jets, including fighters and bombers,” during the practice on Thursday, according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.
Two days after US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China’s foreign ministry claimed that Japanese officials were “behaving extremely badly” over recent comments regarding the heightened tensions in Taiwan Strait.
Japan stated that when China started its military drill near Taiwan, it had an impact on the nation’s security and significantly jeopardized the safety of its citizens. After US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi left the island nation, infuriating China, the Communist dictatorship started conducting live-fire drills in the Taiwan Strait. Chinese missiles allegedly landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, alarming officials who urged for the “immediate termination” of the Chinese military exercise.
A Chinese military plane flies over Pingtan Island, which is located in Fujian province and is one of mainland China’s closest points to Taiwan. The median line that runs through the Taiwan Strait, according to Taiwan, was crossed by Chinese fighter jets and ships. Since Thursday, when US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the island nation, China has been conducting massive drills. On Friday, China launched its second day of military exercises near Taiwan.
While finishing up her visit to the area and the Chinese military drill, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was in Tokyo. As the Communist country announced it had begun a “conventional missile firepower attack” in Taiwan’s eastern region, the US accused China of conducting “aggressive military exercises.”
Japan lodged a diplomatic protest against the drills, according to Taiwan, and the Chinese military reportedly fired 11 Dongfeng ballistic missiles.
As Taipei alleged that 22 Chinese fighter jets flew into the Taiwan Strait during the first day of the military drill, Japan’s defense minister Nobuo Kishi said that at least five missiles had landed in the country’s seas.
