Defense ministry monitoring PLA Pacific drill


The defense ministry said Thursday it is closely monitoring Chinese air and sea exercises taking place off Taiwan’s southeast coast.


The ministry said PLA H-6 bombers and other aircraft passed through the Miyako waterway and Bashi channel to the Western Pacific southeast of Taiwan’s southernmost point. It said the aircraft linked up with PLA destroyers and frigates to carry out a joint exercise.


The ministry said it is fully aware of the situation and there is no cause for alarm.
