China Military to Surround Taiwan for Exercises in Response to Pelosi Trip

From Newsweek | World by Tom O'Connor

As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan, the Chinese military released a map of exercises to begin in a matter of days that will surround the disputed island that Beijing has repeatedly warned the woman who is third-in-line to the U.S. presidency not to enter.

Upon Pelosi's arrival in Taiwan on Tuesday, People's Liberation Army Eastern Theater Command spokesperson Senior Colonel Shi Yi said that the command "will conduct a series of joint military operations around Taiwan Island, and conduct joint air and sea exercises in the sea and airspaces of the northern, southwestern, and southeastern Taiwan Islands."
