China constantly denounced and threatened to take action against Pelosis for visiting Taiwan, which it claims as its own. China’s navy and air force started conducting military drills in six zones surrounding Taiwan on her last day there, some of which overlapped Taiwan’s territorial seas.

In response, the US sent six warships to the region.

The People’s Liberation Army, the military wing of the in power Communist Party, announced in a statement that “Long-range armed live fire precision missile attacks were carried out on designated targets in the eastern part of the Taiwan Strait.”

The Chinese military also stated that “the intended result was achieved.”
The military authorities made no more explanations.

According to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry, its own armed forces were keeping track of Chinese moves while taking care to prevent any clashes that may risk worsening the situation.

According to the ministry, China’s “irrational action” has harmed regional peace and stability.
According to the statement, “the three service branches will coordinate their efforts with all people to jointly preserve national security and territorial integrity” of Taiwan.
