Taiwan: China’s military maneuvers violate UN rules

The Taiwanese Ministry of Defense condemned the large-scale military exercises around the island announced by Beijing in retaliation for the visit to Taipei of the Speaker of the House, US Nancy Pelosi, because in violation of UN rules.

“Some of the areas plotted by the maneuvers end up in Taiwan’s territorial waters,” ministry spokesman Sun Li-fang noted at a press conference, noting that “this is an irrational move to challenge the international order.” The Taiwanese military “will defend national security,” Sun added.
