Beijing [China], Aug 23 (ANI): Amid the threat of China endangering Taiwan's security, the country's defence ministry has released a video showing troops firing anti-aircraft, anti-tank and anti-ship missiles in defence of the island against a mock invasion from across the Taiwan Strait, South China Morning Post reported.

While releasing the video, the ministry reportedly issued a warning to China saying that the latter should not underestimate the island nation's capability to defend itself.

South China Morning Post quoted the ministry as saying, "The most egotistical country can thoughtlessly provoke a war and the most ignorant government can be caught in the flames of war."
The ministry further said that repeated provocation by China's People's Liberation Army will no longer work.

"It would have only the effect of triggering the wrath and antipathy of Taiwan's people, and hurt peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait," the ministry said.    [FULL  STORY]
