China Launches 'Punishment' Drills Around Taiwan:   China's military on Thursday launched a massive two-day 'punishment' drills around Taiwan. Its army, navy, air force, and rocket force are participating in it. China has done this exercise at a time when the new President of the self-ruled island of Taiwan, Lai Ching-te, has rejected China's claim of sovereignty over the country.

Let us tell you that China claims Taiwan as its territory. Beijing says that it will one day annex Taiwan to China even if it has to use force for this.

According to the news of state news agency Xinhua, the Eastern Theater Command of the China People's Liberation Army (PLA) started joint military exercises around the island of Taiwan at 7:45 am on Thursday.
