Taiwan Holds Large-Scale Military Drills amid China Tensions

Taiwan Holds Large-Scale Military Drills
Taiwan simulated repelling an invading force on Thursday and used civilian-operated drones for the first time as part of annual military drills on the self-ruled island amid escalating tensions with China.


The drills were presided over by Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and watched by the visiting king of eSwatini, the African kingdom formerly known as Swaziland at the center of a diplomatic tug-of-war between Taiwan and China.

China claims self-ruled Taiwan as its sacred territory, under its "one China" policy, and Beijing has never renounced the use of force to bring what it sees as a wayward province under its control.

China's air force has conducted a series of military maneuvers near the island in recent months that Taipei has denounced as intimidation.
