TAIPEI — Taiwan on Sunday denounced North Korea’s missile test and said it was closely monitoring the movements of the Chinese navy in the South China Sea and West Pacific.
Presidential Office Spokesman Alex Huang expressed the government’s strong disapproval of North Korea’s ballistic missile launch into the Sea of Japan early on Sunday, noting that Taiwan’s defense and national security authorities are “watching closely” military responses in the region.
“Any act aimed at intimidating and threatening and any behavior that undermines regional stability should be severely denounced,” Huang said.
In response to a Chinese military media report that a fleet of naval ships departed Sanya, Hainan Island, two days ago on a training mission, Huang said defense and security officials are “closely monitoring” the situation and all necessary deployments and countermeasures have been taken.
