On Saturday, Chinese naval forces held live-fire drills in the Taiwan Strait, which separates Taiwan from China, according to the South China Morning Post. Chinese officials have said often they will fight to absorb Taiwan. Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Wei Fenghe made that point last month, according to The New York Times. “If anyone dares to split off Taiwan, we will not hesitate to fight, will not flinch from the cost and will fight to the very end,” he said.
