TAIWAN-USA: Chinese laborers near Taiwan upon arrival of an American representative
BEIJING / TAIPEH (Reuters) - The Chinese military began combat drills near the Taiwan Strait on Friday, the same day a member of the US administration was received in Taipei.
The People's Liberation Army had already carried out aerial and naval maneuvers last week on the outskirts of the island, whose rapprochement with the United States worries Beijing.
"This is a reasonable and necessary initiative in the current situation of the Taiwan Strait to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity," said a spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Defense, without specifying the nature of these exercises.
Chris Matthews Faces Backlash for Tweeting Trump 'Was Right to Show Respect' to Bader Ginsburg
Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews faced backlash Monday after he tweeted that President Donald Trump "was right" to show respect to the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Trump is right to show respect for RBG. True presidential behavior. Far too rare," tweeted the one-time "Hardball" host. In March, Matthews abruptly announced his retirement from the show on air and apologized for inappropriate comments he made to and about women in the past.
"The United States and the Democratic Progressive Party (PDP) have intensified their collusion, frequently creating unrest," he continued, referring to the formation in power in Taipei. Taiwan is a purely Chinese affair that does not tolerate any foreign interference and "those who play with fire will burn themselves," he added.
Keith Krach, US Secretary of Economic Affairs, began his first day of consultations in Taiwan on Friday in a discreet manner. No media event is on the agenda. He is to be received during the day by President Tsai Ing-wen. China, which considers the island an integral part of its territory, had threatened to provide the "necessary response" to the visit.
