China’s air traffic authority has sent a notice to airlines operating in Asia, informing them of an upcoming military exercise around Taiwan. Six zones were designated by the Chinese military for live fire training and they advised that passengers avoid them.
The notice, which was reported by Bloomberg, was sent during US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the self-governed Chinese island, in defiance of Beijing’s objections.
Chinese media released the map earlier. It shows that exercises will be held between Thursday and Sunday. A few appeared to show the 12-mile zone that surrounds the island, which is normally considered Taiwanese territory waters.
China views the island as part of its territory. Although Taiwan’s military claimed Beijing’s move violated “UN rules”It was a blocking order.
