Taiwan’s Premier Says Military Downed Drone in Self-Defense

Taiwan’s premier said the military acted in self-defense when it shot down a drone near an offshore outpost, and indicated the practice would continue.

“This was the most appropriate response after repeated warnings and showing tolerance,” Su Tseng-chang told reporters Friday in the southern city of Kaohsiung. Taiwan would “respond appropriately based on international norms” in the future, he said.
