The statement comes as China has continued military drills in the area in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, with Chinese state media claiming that the military will continue to conduct "regular" drills that cross the Strait median line.
The median line in the Taiwan Strait has for decades been understood by both sides as a boundary military that forces do not cross for fear of escalation that could lead to war. Taiwan's Defense Ministry claims its existence is a "fact," though it has never been legally recognized.
