Defense Minister Richard Marls said reports of a Chinese missile launch near Taiwan were “very concerning”.
In response to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, the Chinese military is conducting its largest training exercise targeted at Taiwan in more than 25 years, and it will continue until Sunday.
“We need to take a path to de-escalate tensions over Taiwan,” Marleth told Sky News Australia.
“Our position remains unchanged.
“We do not want the status quo to change unilaterally on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, and we must urge everyone to ease the tensions we are seeing across the Taiwan Strait.”
