China has suspended the import of some fruits from Taiwan as of Wednesday last week, according to an official statement. The import ban includes grapefruits, lemons and oranges. Beijing’s move came in response to a trip by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, the first visit by a sitting US House speaker to the island nation in 25 years.
The Chinese military has also announced exercises, including live-fire drills, in six locations around Taiwan from Thursday to Sunday.
