The declaration of “countermeasures” came as enraged Beijing staged a second day of massive military drills around the island it considers its territory.

Taiwan’s defense ministry said it deployed jets yesterday to repel 49 Chinese planes in its air defense zone.

Beijing also announced sanctions against Pelosi and her immediate family members.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken last night called China’s response “manifestly provocative”.
