TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan on Sunday condemned what it called a “provocative” move by China after two Chinese fighter jets crossed a maritime border separating the two sides amid growing friction between Taipei and Beijing.
Earlier on Sunday Taiwan scrambled aircraft to drive away the two Chinese planes, the self-ruled island’s defence ministry said.
China’s move had “seriously impacted regional safety and stability”, the ministry said in a statement.
There was no immediate reaction from Beijing, which views Taiwan as a renegade Chinese province. [FULL STORY]
