Apr 15 2022
China’s military sent frigates, bombers and fighter planes to the East China Sea and the area around Taiwan on Friday, People’s Liberation Army Eastern Theater Command spokesman Shi Yilu said, according to China’s state broadcaster.
“This operation is in response to the recent frequent release of wrong signals by the United States on the Taiwan issue,” Shi said, without mentioning the visiting U.S. lawmakers.
“The U.S. bad actions and tricks are completely futile and very dangerous. Those who play with fire will burn themselves,” he said.
