Taiwan holds live-fire military drill to 'prep for invasion' by China

Taiwan's foreign minister Joseph Wu, reportedly, accused China of 'preparing for an invasion'. 

Taiwan's military began a live-fire artillery exercise on Tuesday simulating a defence of the island against an attack by China amid massive military drills conducted by Beijing over the past week.

The drills, reportedly, started in the southern county of Pingtung and include the deployment of several troops and howitzers.

Meanwhile, Taiwan's foreign minister, reportedly, accused China of 'preparing for an invasion'. Joseph Wu said that Beijing is using air and sea drills encircling the island and to change the status quo in the Asia-Pacific region.

China launched its largest-ever war drills around Taiwan in response to a visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the highest-ranking US official to visit the self-ruled island in 25 years. The visit was seen by China as the US undermining the 'One China Policy.'

China views its neighbour Taiwan as part of Chinese territory to be reclaimed one day.
