China fired missiles on Taiwan border, meeting with Japan canceled on G-7 statement

 Beijing/Taipei, Aug 4 , (Fast Mail News):-- The Chinese anger emanating from the visit of US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan is not seeming to stop. China has put pressure on the Taiwan border by firing missiles. Angered by the G-7's statement on this issue, China has canceled the proposed foreign ministerial meeting with Japan.

 

Despite heavy protests and threats from China, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan on Tuesday and Wednesday. Since then, China's anger has not stopped. Chinese soldiers fired missiles fiercely on the Taiwan border. China's Defense Ministry confirmed the launch of 11 missiles. It was said that China has fired these missiles in the waters around Taiwan during military exercises. China's Eastern Theater Command said it fired conventional missiles on waters off Taiwan's east coast on Thursday as part of a planned exercise. A spokesman for the Eastern Theater Command said control of the relevant maritime and airspace was withdrawn after the firing was complete. Meanwhile, Taiwan's Defense Ministry has called it an irrational action that undermines regional peace. Taiwan's Defense Ministry said in a statement that the Communist Party of China had fired several Dongfeng series ballistic missiles in areas of northeast and southwest Taiwan around 2 p.m.

 Apart from this, China is not going to tolerate any talk in favor of Taiwan from anywhere in the world. A meeting between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Japanese counterpart was to take place on the sidelines of the ASEAN foreign ministers' meeting in Cambodia on Thursday. Meanwhile, a statement by the foreign ministers of the G-7, a group consisting of the US, England, Italy, Germany, France, Canada and Japan, surfaced. The statement called on China to peacefully resolve tensions around Taiwan. Considering this statement against itself, China expressed its displeasure and it was announced to cancel the proposed meeting between the foreign ministers of China and Japan. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said that the Chinese side is very upset with the joint statement made by the G-7 regarding Taiwan.
