Taiwan slams China for extending military drills

Taiwan's Foreign Ministry condemned on Monday China's decision to extend military exercises near the island.

The ministry accused Beijing of provoking and deliberately creating a crisis.

China launched military drills around Taiwan last week in response to United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to visit the island despite warnings from Beijing against such a move. Earlier today, Beijing said it started new exercises in the region, noting they will primarily focus on testing the country's anti-submarine and sea assault capabilities.
