In a brief announcement about the completion of the drills, the Eastern Theater Command of the PLA said it "will keep an eye on the changes in the situation in the Taiwan Strait."
The PLA will also "continue to carry out training and preparation for combat, organize regular combat readiness patrols in the direction of the Taiwan Strait, and resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity."
Another policy statement issued in English by the Cabinet's Taiwan Affairs Office said Beijing was dedicated to achieve the "peaceful reunification" of Taiwan and China.
"But we will not renounce the use of force, and we reserve the option of taking all necessary measures. This is to guard against external interference and all separatist activities," it said.
China went on to threaten to use force against "interference by external forces or radical action by separatist elements."
China ups military pressure on Taiwan
Beijing has claimed that its moves were triggered by Pelosi's trip to Taiwan last week. However, Taipei insists that such visits by Western officials are routine and accuses China of using the trip as a pretext to increase military threats.
According to media reports, China's navy continued activities near the "median line," an unofficial buffer in the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday afternoon. Taipei said 17 Chinese fighter jets crossed the median line.
A Taiwan Defense Ministry spokesman on Wednesday said Taipei would "fully adjust the allocation of forces based on factors such as the enemy threat."
