Japan PM slams China missile tests

 


TOKYO: Japan’s prime minister on Friday condemned China’s firing of ballistic missiles during military drills around Taiwan, calling them a “serious problem that impacts our national security and the safety of our citizens.”
Five Chinese missiles appear to have fallen in the country’s exclusive economic zone, Tokyo has said, with four of those believed to have flown over Taiwan’s main island.
“China’s actions this time around have a serious impact on the peace and stability of our region and the international community,” Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told reporters after meeting US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for breakfast.
“I told her that we have called for the immediate cancellation of the military drills.”
Pelosi is in Tokyo for the final leg of an Asian tour that included a stop in Taiwan, infuriating Beijing, which has launched its largest-ever military drills around the self-ruled island in response.

Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen issued a call for restraint as mainland China conducted its largest-ever military exercises in waters surrounding the self-ruled island. Tsai said Beijing’s decision to launch missiles into international waters and vital shipping lanes, was “irresponsible” and a “threat to the international community”. The Taiwanese leader spoke as the cross-strait crisis spilled over into Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) meetings in Cambodia. Beijing officials cancelled meetings with their Japanese counterparts, and top diplomat Wang Yi walked out of Asean events including a gala dinner after Group of 7 (G7) nations released a joint statement accusing China of “destabilising the region”.
