Image of Asia: Speaking to Taiwan's troops at military drill

In this photo by Chiang Ying-ying, Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen delivers a speech at a military exercise in southern Taiwan. She and other observers wore flak jackets and helmets as Taiwanese forces carried out a live-fire demonstration that simulated an attempt by Chinese forces to land on the island. The president said the participating soldiers showed their determination to protect the nation and she and they would put all their efforts into fulfilling that task together.
