China Fires Missiles: China has fired 11 ballistic missiles in two hours on Thursday, taking provocation around Taiwan.
China has fired ballistic missiles into the territory of Taiwan during military exercises during the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Asia. Japan opposed this action, claiming that these missiles fell in Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone. Meanwhile, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has also reached Tokyo from Taiwan. This is his last round of Asia tour.
This move of China is believed to be an action taken against Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. On China’s firing of ballistic missiles, Japan’s defense chief said that five missiles launched by China during military exercises near Taiwan have fallen in Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone. China has fired several ballistic missiles into the sea area of Taiwan. Taiwan also opposed this action of China.

We urge the international community to condemn this irresponsible behavior of China.
