AN escalation in Chinese military drills has upset one nation, which has now warned Beijing of dangerous consequences if it invades.
AN increase in the size and frequency of Chinese military operations off the coast of Taiwan has drawn a stern warning over escalating tensions.

The island of Taiwan was a province of China prior to a civil war in 1949. As Communist forces took control of the mainland, China’s government fled to Taiwan.
