By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the Taiwanese Government announced that around 6 am on November 15, it detected Chinese military aircraft in its Air Defense Identification Zone, Fox News reports.
Taiwan sent naval vessels into the area after it detected 16 aircraft and 3 vessels.
“[The Republic of China’s Armed Forces] has monitored the situation and responded to these activities with aircraft in CAP, naval vessels, and land-based missile systems,” the Taiwanese government said.
In addition, Taiwan’s Defence Military provided identification of the aircraft and flight paths.
“5 of the detected aircraft (J-10*2, Y-8 EW, BZK-005 UAV RECCE, and Y-8 ASW) had crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait and entered Taiwan’s SW ADIZ, flight paths as illustrated,” it added.
There are heightened tensions between Taiwan and China since China views Taiwan as its territory and has long vowed to “reunify” the self-governing democratic island.
U.S. President Joe Biden said on Monday that he did “not think there’s any imminent attempt on the part of China to invade Taiwan,” following a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
