Taipei, Sept. 10 (CNA) Taiwan's government on Thursday slammed Beijing for its increasingly provocative actions after multiple incursions by Chinese Air Force planes and Navy vessels when they conducted drills within 90 nautical miles (166 kilometers) of Taiwan over the past two days.

In a hastily called press conference Thursday night, Vice Defense Minister Chang Che-ping (張哲平) said military assets of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) entered Taiwan's air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on Wednesday and Thursday.

"These military actions have seriously roiled Taiwan and threaten peace and stability in the region," Chang said.

He warned that PLA military assets are also maneuvering along international flight routes, endangering international aviation safety, adding that the Chinese authorities should exercise restraint and not be a "trouble maker" in the region.    [FULL  STORY]
