Beijing has ordered live-fire drills, as well as naval and aerial exercises, in response to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. The drills were expected to be held from August 4-7, 2022, after Beijing warned of “grave consequences” over Pelosi’s visit to the self-ruled island. Beijing regards Taiwan as a renegade province to be reunited by force if necessary. Mainland Chinese officials have warned the US against official ties with Taiwan, which most countries don’t recognise as a sovereign state. Washington acknowledges the one-China principle, but opposes moves to take Taiwan by force.
