China stages more drills near Taiwan as U.S. lawmakers visit

BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s military said it carried out further drills near Taiwan on Monday as a group of U.S. lawmakers visited the Chinese-claimed island and met with President Tsai Ing-wen.

The People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theatre Command said the exercises were “a stern deterrent to the United States and Taiwan continuing to play political tricks and undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait”.
