The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China said on Friday that Taiwan’s ruling party is trying to escalate tensions after the self-governing island shot down an unidentified civilian drone this week.

“The Progressive Democratic Party’s attempt to escalate tensions means nothing,” spokesperson Zhao Lijian said in a regular statement, in response to a question about the drone firing.

Taiwan shot down the drone as it flew over a island controlled by the country on the Chinese coast on Thursday (1st).

Taiwan’s Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang said the shooting was the most “appropriate” thing to do after repeated warnings, adding that China should exercise restraint.
