Taiwanese 'not worried' as China drills end

STORY: Nancy Pelosi's visit last week to the self-ruled island infuriated China, which responded with test launches of ballistic missiles over the island's capital for the first time and the cutting of communication links with the United States.

However, twenty-four-year-old Hsinchu resident, Chen, who was at the Hsinchu Air Force Space to watch the military aircrafts, told Reuters that Taiwanese people are not worried.

The Chinese exercises, centered on six locations around the island that China claims as its own, began on Thursday (August 4) and were scheduled to last until midday on Sunday, the official Xinhua News Agency reported last week.

Taiwan's transport ministry said on Sunday afternoon it was gradually lifting restrictions on flights through its airspace, saying notifications for the drills were no longer in effect.
