Asia (bbabo.net), - Four warplanes and three ships of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) recorded the Taiwanese military in the airspace of the island and the waters adjacent to it. This was announced today, January 25, by TASS with reference to the Ministry of Defense of Taiwan.
This time, according to the statement, none of the PLA aircraft and ships crossed the so-called median line of the Taiwan Strait and did not enter the island's air defense identification zone.
Prior to this, this line was crossed by the PLA on January 21. Then three ships and 14 aircraft of the Chinese army approached Taiwan. One reconnaissance drone crossed the median line.
The PLA has been regularly patrolling the waters around the island in recent months. Tensions in the Taiwan Strait escalated after then-Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi paid a visit to Taipei last August. This trip caused extreme discontent in Beijing.
