The Chinese People’s Liberation Army will hold live-fire exercises in the vicinity of Taiwan from August 4 to 7.

It will do so in response to the visit of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosito Taiwan, where he landed this Tuesday, and where on Wednesday he visited the local Parliament and met with President Tsai Ing-wen.

Beijing claims the island as its own territory and has taken the parliamentary leader’s trip, the highest-ranking US official to Taiwan in 25 years, as a grave affront.

Shortly after Pelosi landed in Taipei, the Chinese media announced the military exercise with a ban on all civilian ships and aircraft from entering the surrounding regions.
