BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Taiwan cancels military exercise: "Taiwan cancels military exercise
Taiwan says it is cancelling a military exercise due to take place next month after China apparently abandoned similar manoeuvres.
Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian said that Taipei must show goodwill, whether or not this was the motivation of the Chinese cancellation.
On Monday, Taiwanese military officials said hundreds of Chinese troops had left the nearby island of Dongshan.
China claims sovereignty over Taiwan and relations are always tense.
'China has cancelled the military drills on Dongshan island, so we have decided that we will cancel the 9 September Han Kuang exercises,' Mr Chen told reporters onboard an aircraft taking him on an official visit to Panama. "
