According to the Chinese foreign ministry, Taiwan is a part of China, and China is conducting normal military drills “in our own waters” in an open, transparent, and professional manner.

The relevant departments have also published timely statements, which is in accordance with both local and international legislation, according to Wang Wenbin, a spokesman for the ministry, at a regular media conference.

Wang was questioned if China’s continued military drills are legal under international law, and if a new warning for civilian ships and planes will be issued.

China’s military launched new drills around Taiwan, a self-governed island that Beijing claims as its own, on Monday, following days of protests over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taipei last week.
