China: Drills near Taiwan completed successfully

The Chinese military announced on Wednesday that it is ending the exercises in the waters and airspace around Taiwan. A spokesperson for the Eastern Theatre Command said the military "has successfully completed various tasks, and effectively tested the integrated joint combat capabilities of the troops," according to South China Morning Post.

The drills started on Monday, just after the previous exercises ended, in a tense atmosphere surrounding a visit by United States officials to Taiwan. The Chinese military added it will "monitor changes in the situation in the Taiwan Strait and carry out regular combat readiness drills."
