South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Mainland China military exercises continue around Taiwan beyond announced deadline” – below is their description.
Mainland China continued military operations around Taiwan on August 8, 2022, beyond the four days Beijing said drills would be held in response to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the self-governed island. Mainland officials had indicated that manoeuvres would end at noon on August 7, but the People’s Liberation Army did not officially declare a conclusion to the war games and later said they would continue with a focus on anti-submarine and sea-assault operations. The PLA notice offered no details about any locations or end date for the continued operations around Taiwan, which Beijing considers a renegade province.
