Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said the Chinese military fired 11 Dongfeng missiles on the first day of the exercises.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby criticized the Chinese military’s live-fire exercises around Taiwan as “extremely aggressive” and “irresponsible.”

Mainland China conducted the exercises over three consecutive days starting Thursday, calling it a “necessary and legitimate step to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.” Japan said five of the 11 Dongfeng missiles fired by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army on Thursday (4) landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Japan had asked China to stop the exercises immediately.

Taiwan’s Yuan CEO Su Chengchang described the military exercises on the Chinese mainland as an “evil neighbor who flaunts his power on our side,” and said, “Taiwan will not surrender under pressure.”
