China vowed to surround the island as part of targeted military operations.

China’s military exercises have invaded Taiwan’s territory by blocking its sea and air space, the country’s defence ministry has said.

The move came hours before Nancy Pelosi the highest level US figure to visit the contested island in 25 years left the island on Wednesday.

The speaker, who donned a white suit and blue face mask, waved at politicians before boarding the aircraft.

China vowed to surround the island as part of targeted military operations.

Taiwan’s Defence Ministry said China’s military drills in its sea and airspace were “endangering international shipping lanes, challenging the international order, undermining the status quo in the Taiwan Strait, and endangering the area.

Pelosi had previously described the self-ruled island as “one of the freest societies in the world.

The US politician who arrived in Taiwan defying China’s warnings met with the country’s President Tsai Ing-wen an unannounced visit that has infuriated China.

The controversial visit prompted China to scramble two Chinese jets to Taiwan’s airspace just minutes before her arrival, local publication SETN reported.
