Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen said on Tuesday April 16th that the self-ruled island is not intimidated by China's military drills this week, Reuters has reported.

The drills are the latest military manoeuvres that a senior U.S. official denounced as "coercion" and a threat to stability in the region.

As reported by Reuters, Tsai was speaking at a forum co-hosted by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs to mark the 40th anniversary of Taiwan-U.S. ties.

Chinese bombers and warships conducted drills around Taiwan on Monday April 15th.
