Mainland China military exercises continue around Taiwan beyond announced deadline

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.

In This Story: Taiwan

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
