Jakarta, Klinik Farma – China’s relations with Taiwan are becoming increasingly heated. Just recently, on Wednesday morning (09/13/2023), 28 Chinese Air Force aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defense zone.
Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said Xi’s planes, including J-10 fighter jets, entered the country around 6 a.m. local time. Chinese warplanes flew into the southwestern part of the island’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ).
Taiwanese troops are said to be monitoring the situation. Including sending the Air Force’s own aircraft and activating the air defense system to respond to the Bamboo Curtain country’s attack.
The ministry also added that several Chinese aircraft crossed the Bashi Strait. It was previously reported that China will conduct exercises with the Chinese aircraft carrier Shandong in the Pacific Ocean.
Also on Wednesday, more than 20 Chinese warships, including a Type 055 destroyer, sailed through the Bashi Strait and Miyako Strait towards the Pacific Ocean. This was reported by a senior official familiar with security planning in the region. Reuters.
China’s naval maneuvers as well as carrier group exercises have irritated the United States (US), the source said. The US Navy itself, along with US and Canadian warships, passed through the Taiwan Strait on Saturday.
This is the second joint mission since June. This also coincided with the participation of the leaders of the two countries at the G20 summit in India. Not only that, but the navies of the two countries will also reportedly conduct a series of exercises in the South China Sea this week.
Democratically governed Taiwan is regarded by China as its own territory. In recent years, the island has complained of increased Chinese military activity near the island as it tries to assert its claims to sovereignty.
