Taipei, August 5
Taiwan's defence ministry on Friday said the island's military has dispatched aircraft and ships and deployed land-based missile systems to monitor the situation, as China conducts large-scale military drills in zones surrounding Taiwan.
Multiple Chinese vessels and aircraft crossed the Taiwan Strait median line on Friday morning, the defence ministry said, which described China's military activities as highly provocative.
Taiwan's military will prepare combat readiness but will not ask for a war, the defence ministry added.
