China to hold military drills near Taiwan.
China on Friday announced military exercises near Taiwan in light of a visit by US congressmen to the island. A delegation of six US congressmen, headed by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez, arrived on the island on Thursday on an unannounced visit. They will hold talks with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and National Defense Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng, Taiwanese news agency CNA reported. “On April 15, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command sent warships, bombers, fighter jets and other forces to organize multi-purpose combat patrols and conduct sea and air exercises in the East China Sea and around the island of Taiwan,” the Eastern Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army of China said in a statement. According to the Chinese military, these actions were organized in response to “recent erroneous US signals regarding the Taiwan issue,” and are absolutely useless and very dangerous.
