China extends drills as Taiwan announces its own drills

DW, 08 Aug 2022
Taiwan has condmned China for extending military drills off its coast into a fifth day. Taipei also accused Beijing of trying to deliberately provoke a reaction from it. The condemnation followed China's decision to defy calls to end its biggest-ever show of force against the self-governing island.
