China’s military has begun live-fire training off the coast of Taiwan amid a possible visit to the island nation by US House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi.
This is reported Daily Mail citing local media, Ukrinform reports.
It is noted that the firing takes place near the islands of Pingtan in the province of Funjan. China’s Civil Maritime Safety Administration has warned ships to bypass the region.
As reported, the press secretary of the lower house of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi went on a business trip to Asia. She will probably visit Taiwan, but this information has not been officially confirmed.
