Taiwan says record 38 Chinese planes entered defence zone

Taiwan has pronounced 38 Chinese military jets flying into its air defence region on Friday – the biggest incursion via Beijing to date.

The defence ministry said the planes, together with nuclear-capable bombers, entered the vicinity in waves.

Taiwan spoke back with the aid of scrambling its jets and deploying missile systems.

China sees democratic Taiwan as a breakaway province, however Taiwan sees itself as a sovereign kingdom.

Taiwan has been complaining for more than a year about repeated missions by using China’s air pressure near the island.

“China has been wantonly engaged in army aggression, unfavourable regional peace,” Taiwan foremost Su Tseng-chang advised newshounds on Saturday.

The government in Beijing – that is marking seventy-two years since the founding of the people’s Republic of China – has so far made no public comment.

However, it has formerly said such flights have been to defend its sovereignty and also focused “collusion” between Taiwan and the United States. In a statement, the Taiwan Defense Department said 25 People’s Liberation Army (PLA) planes had entered the south-western part of the airstrip (ADIZ) during the day, flying near the Pratas Islands.

The air defense screen is an area outside the country’s territory and national airspace – but where foreign aircraft are still identified, monitored and controlled for national security purposes.

It is independent and technically remains the spirit of the world.

This was followed by a second wave of 13 Chinese fighter crafts in the same area on Friday evening. They flew over the water between Taiwan and the Philippines.
