Chinese warships are sailing into positions around Taiwan, ahead of four days of live-fire exercises.
The actions being taken by Beijing are thought to be caused by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island, who praised it for having “one of the freest societies in the world”.
The Taiwan Defence Ministry says China has broken UN rules and it would counter any incursions into its territory.
