According to media reports, China has warned airlines around the world that it has declared six airspaces around Taiwan as danger zones and asked them to stay away from them, and has suspended all international flights around it from August 4 to 12. .

The Ministry of Defense of Taiwan says that the Chinese military has fired several ballistic missiles into the Taiwan Sea in exercises today.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense has strongly condemned the Chinese military exercises while expressing its indignation.

They say that the Chinese soldiers have violated the laws of the United Nations, the military exercises are an unreasonable move to change the status quo, harming regional peace.
