Chinese general says exercises in Taiwan mean they can ‘strike whenever we want’


A Chinese major general said on state television that military fire drills surround “the entire island” of Taiwan so they “can strike whenever we want, but we want.”

“We are calm and not impetuous, but we will defend our sovereignty and democracy,” Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said in response to the exercises.

The military exercises, which began Thursday (Aug. 4), have been condemned by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida as a threat to regional security.
