China began military drills near the Taiwan Strait as US undersecretary of state Keith Krach visited the island. Beijing sent bombers and fighters across the midline of the strait on September 18, the same day Krach met with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that the military exercises were “necessary action” in response to the current situation across the strait.
