China Violates Taiwan’s Airspace amid Xi-Biden Video Call


On Monday evening, even as Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was holding a virtual summit with President Joe Biden, Chinese warplanes once again entered Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). It was the 14th such intrusion since the beginning of November.

Monday’s event was much smaller than the enormous Chinese military flights that raised tensions in the region last month. According to Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense (MND), this time it was two of China’s Shenyang J-11 fighters, two Chengdu J-10 fighters, one Shaanxi Y-8 electronic intelligence turboprop, and one Shaanxi Y-8 configured for electronic warfare.
