Taiwan To Stage War Game Against Chinese Attack

From AP:

Taiwan will go ahead with its annual war games to prepare for a possible Chinese attack, the military said Tuesday, despite the recent warming in relations with Beijing.

The military drill will feature live-fire air and navy interception and anti-landing maneuvers, the Defense Ministry announced.

“Even if relations are warming, we will not relax in our war preparedness,” Lt. Gen. Chiu Kuo-cheng told reporters.

He said troops will practice how to increase their effectiveness at the Sept. 22-26 war games.
