Taiwan asks its ships to avoid China’s military exercise areas

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

Taiwan’s Ports and Shipping Administration (APNT) has urged vessels Wednesday to avoid areas designated for military exercises by the Chinese military following a visit to the island by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Asian giant’s armed forces are scheduled to carry out a series of maneuvers from Thursday through Sunday in the vicinity of Taiwan, as indicated by Taiwan’s Central News Agency.

Thus, the APNT has warned that these works will hinder navigation in the area and has insisted on seeking alternative routes in and out of the ports of seven cities on the island.
