Putin lashes out at Biden over 'irresponsible' Pelosi trip as he BACKS China over Taiwan

Date:


“We also see that the collective West is seeking to extend its bloc system to the Asia-Pacific region by analogy with NATO in Europe.

“For this purpose, aggressive military-political alliances are being formed, such as AUKUS and others.”

Furious at Ms Pelosi’s visit to Taipei, China had extended its largest-ever exercises around the self-ruled island it claims as its own beyond the four days originally scheduled.

The military drills included launches of ballistic missiles, some of which flew over the island’s capital of Taipei, and simulated sea and air attacks in surrounding skies and waters.

In a brief statement, the Eastern Theatre Command of the People’s Liberation Army said its joint military operations around Taiwan had “successfully completed various tasks and effectively tested the integrated combat capabilities of the troops”.

It added: “Theatre forces will keep an eye on the changes in the situation in the Taiwan Strait, continue to carry out training and preparation for combat, organise regular combat readiness patrols in the direction of the Taiwan Strait, and resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
