Taiwan president says island not intimidated by Chinese military drills
TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen said on Tuesday the self-ruled island is not intimidated by China's military drills this week, the latest military manoeuvres that a senior U.S. official denounced as "coercion" and a threat to stability in the region.
Tsai was speaking at a forum co-hosted by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs to mark the 40th anniversary of Taiwan-U.S. ties.
Chinese bombers and warships conducted drills around Taiwan on Monday.
