China on Tuesday conducted live-fire drills involving multiple military services in the surrounding sea and airspace of the southwest and southeast of the island of Taiwan, a spokesperson for the Eastern Theater Command of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) said.

Army Senior Colonel Shi Yi said the drills were in response to interference from external forces and provocations from Taiwan's "independence forces."
