China has started two days of military exercises involving the army, navy, air force and rocket force in areas around Taiwan Strait today.  

In a statement, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said the drills are a necessary and legitimate move to safeguard national sovereignty.

The Spokesperson stressed that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory.

The drills include joint sea-air combat-readiness patrols, precision strikes on key targets and integrated operations inside and outside the island to test joint real combat capabilities of its forces.
