Eastern theater responds to U.S. military planes sailing through the Taiwan Strait


2022-06-25: [Chinese Article Link]  Source: Global Network [GirlNet report] According to a 24-day report by Taiwan's “Central Service”, the U.S. Army Indian Command issued a statement declaring that a United States Navy P-8A naval patrol aircraft flew over the Taiwan Strait on 24 days, claiming that it was “the commitment of the United States to free and open the Indo-Pacific region”. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had previously made it clear that Taiwan was an integral part of China and that the question of Taiwan was a purely internal matter of Chinese sovereignty and territorial integrity and the most important and sensitive issue in the relations between China and the United States. The frequent passage of United States warships across the Taiwan Strait, displaying force, creating a crisis and sending the wrong signal to the separatist forces of the “Taiwan independence”, is a very irresponsible and dangerous act that is tantamount to “playing fire”. On the evening of the 24th night, the Ministry of Defence of Taiwan repeated its claim that the foreign aircraft and naval movements around the Taiwan Strait were “all in control and relevant”. In the case of the production of the U.S. military aircraft P-8A over the Taiwan Sea, “showing a commitment to free and open India”, there is the irony among the island's network: “The mainland is called a jamming platform, the U.S. is called a free voyage, and there are a couple of more”. It is worth noting that the United States and its allies have previously claimed that much of the Taiwan Strait is “international waters.” The United States State Department spokesman Ned Price, in an e-mail addressed to Reuters on 14 June local time, also declared that “the Taiwan Strait is international waters” and that the United States “will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere permitted by international law, including through the Taiwan Strait”. China has made it clear that Taiwan is an integral part of China, and that the Taiwan Strait is about 70 nautical miles in its narrowest position and 220 nautical miles in its widest possible range. In accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the domestic law of China, the waters of the Taiwan Strait extend from the coasts of both sides to the central line of the Straits, in turn comprising the internal waters of China, the territorial sea, the contiguous zone and the exclusive economic zone. China has sovereignty, sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the Taiwan Strait, while respecting the legitimate rights of other countries in the relevant maritime areas. Moreover, there is no “international waters” in the international law of the sea.
