As China tests military muscle, PLA warns Taiwan efforts to resist reunification with force are dead end

The People’s Liberation Army said that Taiwan would run into a “dead end” if it resisted the mainland’s reunification efforts with force, and that Beijing would continue its “encirclement patrols” in waters and airspace around the island. Wu Qian, spokesman for the defence ministry, said the PLA conducted drills near Taiwanese airspace last week as part of routine training. “The relevant military training is an annual routine arrangement and similar exercises will continue,” Wu said on Thursday.
