The defense ministry says it is prepared for a range of scenarios involving maneuvers
by the Chinese military.
Deputy Defense Minister Shen Yi-ming told lawmakers Thursday that the defense ministry has already made some adjustments after two Chinese warplanes recently crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait.

As part of its preparedness program, the military will hold a war game simulation next week. [FULL STORY]
