China-Taiwan LIVE: ‘Cat and mouse’ Horror as Xi pushes warships ahead – Taipei on standby | World | News

China has blamed the US for “provoking” military drills around Taiwan after US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi visited the island last week.

Defence Ministry spokesperson Wu Qian said: “The current tense situation in the Taiwan Strait is entirely provoked and created by the US side on its own initiative, and the US side must bear full responsibility and serious consequences for this.

“The bottom line cannot be broken, and communication requires sincerity.”

Ms Pelosi’s visit last week infuriated China, which regards Taiwan as its own and responded with test launches of ballistic missiles over Taipei for the first time, as well as ditching some lines of dialogue with Washington.
