BEIJING — Chinese military exercises near Taiwan are aimed at forces promoting the island’s formal independence and interference by external forces and are a “just” move to protect peace and stability, China’s Taiwan Affairs Office said on Wednesday.

“The Democratic Progressive Party authorities’ hyping of the so-called’military threat’ of the mainland is to completely invert right and wrong, and a bogus accusation,” it said, referring to Taiwan’s ruling party. (Reporting by Beijing newsroom; Writing by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Tom Hogue)
