Taiwan's Senior Missile Dev Official Found Dead

Updates on China-Taiwan News: In a ruckus over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan, China declared it was stopping talks with the US in a slew of areas, including between military commanders at the theatre level and on climate change. China's foreign ministry announced that it was also halting communications with the United States for combating transnational crime and drug trafficking, actions that Washington referred to as "irresponsible."

Angered that Pelosi was the highest-ranking American visitor to the autonomous island that Beijing claims as its own in 25 years, China began military exercises in the air and seas surrounding Taiwan on Thursday. The largest live-fire exercises China has ever held in the Taiwan Strait are expected to last until midday on Sunday.

The story's latest updates are as follows:  The deputy chief of Taiwan's defence ministry's research and development branch was found dead in a hotel room on Saturday morning. On Saturday morning, Ou Yang Li-hsing, the deputy director of the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, which is operated by the military, was found dead in a hotel room in southern Taiwan. The reason of death was being investigated by the authorities.
There is only one China in the world, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, and Taiwan is an integral part of Chinese territory. Wang Yi said that the US claim that China has altered the status quo in the Taiwan Strait is a pure "rumour and defamation."

 On Saturday, Taiwan's military reported seeing "several" Chinese aircraft and ships exercising in the Taiwan Strait, claiming they were acting out an assault on the country's main island. The military of Taipei "found many batches of Communist ships and planes operating in the Taiwan Strait, some of which crossed the middle line.
 In retaliation for Pelosi's travel to Taipei, China has announced four days of military drills in six specified zones around Taiwan. The Chinese People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Eastern Theatre Command, which is in charge of Taiwan, carried out joint combat drills and training for a second day on Friday in the waters and airspace off the island of Taiwan.
