China warns of war over Taiwan

# China has warned of war over Taiwan and said it will ramp up countermeasures until complete reunification is achieved. Chinese forces conducted military drills around the self-ruled island yesterday. Warships and fighter jets encircled Taiwan on the second day of exercises that Beijing said were a test of its ability to seize the island, days after its new president was sworn in. China’s military kicked off the two-day war games on Thursday morning, surrounding democratic Taiwan with naval vessels and military aircraft.
