China is conducted a long-range drill with its military aircraft overflying waterways near Taiwan in the disputed South China Sea on Saturday (10 December), Taiwan’s defence ministry said. It is the first such exercise by China since a telephone call between Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen and US President-elect Donald Trump left Beijing annoyed.

However, there seems to be no indication that the drill was China’s response to Taiwan’s alleged shift in policy towards Washington.
