Former US deputy assistant secretary of defence Elbridge Colby warns things are only going to get “worse” between China and Taiwan following Beijing’s announcement it was conducting military drills near the island.

The drills come days after Taiwan inaugurated its new President Lai Ching-te, who Beijing calls a separatist.

“The situation around Taiwan continues to be very dangerous and not getting any better,” Mr Colby said.

“Things are bad and, unfortunately, I think they’re set to get worse.”
