China Conducts Beach Landing Drills Near Taiwan

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.7

According to Chinese military officers, China has performed exercises in beaches near Taiwan. This sends a message to the Island that has been harassed by Chinese aircraft incursions over the last couple of months. These tensions come amid Xi Jinping’s declarations on what he calls a “peaceful reunification” of mainland China and Taiwan under the CCP. However, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said that “there should be absolutely no illusions that the Taiwanese people will bow to pressure.”
