Taiwan says record 38 Chinese planes entered defence zone

Taiwan has reported that 38 Chinese military jets flew into its air defence zone yesterday – the largest incursion by Beijing to date. The Defence Ministry said, the aircraft, including nuclear-capable bombers, entered its Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) in two waves. Taiwan responded by scrambling its jets and deploying missile systems. China sees democratic Taiwan as a breakaway province, but Taiwan sees itself as a sovereign state. Taiwan has been complaining for more than a year about repeated missions by China’s air force near the island.
Taiwan Premier Su Tseng-chang told reporters today that China has been wantonly engaged in military aggression, damaging regional peace. China has so far not made any public comment.
