China Sends Fighter Jets As the US Offers Taiwan’ Strong’ Support in Landmark Visit

TAIPEI – Chinese Air Force planes briefly crossed the centerline of the Taiwan Strait on Monday and were followed by Taiwanese missiles, the Taiwanese government said, as the chief health officer of the United States, Alex Azar, was traveling to the island to offer the strong support of President Donald Trump.
Azar arrived in Taiwan on Sunday as the highest-level US official to visit in four decades, a trip condemned by China which claims the island as its own, further irritating Sino-US relations.
China, which had promised unspecified retaliation for Azar’s trip, briefly flew J-11 and J-10 fighter jets on the Taiwanese side of the sensitive and narrow strait that separates it from its giant neighbor, around 9 in the morning, local time, shortly before Azar met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, the Taiwan Air Force said.
The Chinese planes were followed by land-based Taiwanese anti-aircraft missiles and were “chased” by Taiwanese patrolling jets, the air force said in a statement released by the defense ministry.
The incursion was only the third time since 2016 that Taiwan has said Chinese jets had crossed the strait’s centerline.
Amid the deteriorating relationship between Washington and Beijing, the Trump administration has made boosting its support for the Democratic Island a priority and boosted arms sales.
“It is a real honor to be here to deliver a message of strong support and friendship from President Trump to Taiwan,” Azar told Tsai in the presidential office, standing in front of two Taiwanese flags.
Washington severed official relations with Taipei in 1979 in favor of Beijing.
