Taipei, July 22 (CNA) Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) said Wednesday a
Chinese military exercise that reportedly simulated an attack on Taiwan has hurt the feelings of people in both Taiwan and China.
Since June, China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been conducting a series of military exercises, coded “Stride 2015 Zhurihe,” at Zhurihe Training Base in Inner Mongolia.
Beijing-based state-run China Central Television on July 5 showed video clip of PLA special forces sprinting into a five-story building that looked like Taiwan’s Presidential Office.
The video gave rise to speculations that the exercises were simulating an attack on Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
