China: stop on commercial flights to Taiwan

The Chinese authorities have asked airlines operating in the area to avoid Taiwan’s airspace from 6 am (CEST) tomorrow to 6 am Sunday, when Beijing will carry out military exercises at the island in response to the visit to Taipei of the speaker of the US Chamber, Nancy Pelosi.

Taiwan promptly condemned the military exercises around the island announced by Beijing “because they violate UN rules”. “Concern” about the same exercises was expressed by Japan.
