Chinese Air Force begins more military drills

The Chinese Air Force has started more military drills today, over the Sea of Japan, and around Taiwan. The Air Force said that fighter and bomber aircraft “flew along the Tsushima Strait separating South Korea from Japan, and over international waters”.

“The Sea of Japan is not Japan’s,” Chinese Air Force spokesman Shen Jinke said, adding that the drills are “lawful and reasonable”. China’s military said the exercises are routine and pre-planned.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said five Chinese military planes were spotted entering the Korean air defense identification zone, and that “fighter jets were scrambled in response”. The Chinese aircraft also flew through Japan’s air defense identification zone.
