Pelosi visit prompts China missile launches

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

China launched 11 ballistic missiles into waters around Taiwan’s north-east and south-west coasts, Taiwan said.

The launches, just miles from the coast, followed US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan on Wednesday.

China sees Taiwan as a break-away province that will eventually be brought under its control – by force if necessary.

The US, for its part, does not officially recognise Taiwan. It does, however, maintain a strong relationship with the island – which includes selling weapons for Taiwan to defend itself.
