The relevant departments have also issued announcements in a timely manner, and this is in line with both domestic and international law, said Wang Wenbin, a spokesman at the ministry, at a regular media briefing.

Wang was asked whether or not China’s continuation of its military drills abides by international law, and if a new warning for civilian ships and aircraft will be issued.

China’s military announced fresh drills on Monday around Taiwan, a self-governed island which Beijing claims as its own, following days of exercises to protest against last week’s visit to Taipei by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
