After the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China jumped to the ground and conducted military exercises around the Taiwan Strait one after another, and even crossed the middle line of the Taiwan Strait. The Chinese Communist Party also said today that it will continue military exercises, focusing on organizing joint anti-submarine and sea assault operations. In response, the Ministry of National Defense temporarily decided to hold a press conference at 3:00 p.m. today (8).

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army will carry out the “Taiwan Encirclement” military exercise from noon on the 4th to noon on the 7th. Unexpectedly, the PLA announced today that it will continue to conduct practical joint exercises in the “sea and airspace around Taiwan Island”, focusing on organizing joint anti-submarine and sea assault operations.
my country’s Ministry of National Defense responded yesterday that the CCP announced a few days ago that the exercise would continue until August 8. The Ministry of Defense has no comment on this, and will continue to issue a press release explaining the general situation of the CCP military exercise on that day.
