Taiwan has denounced that 38 Chinese fighter planes have illegally entered its airspace. It is the largest such airspace violation by the Chinese Air Force so far, as the Ministry of Defense announced on Saturday.

In response, among other things, the missile defense was activated. Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang reprimanded the action, saying China was undermining peace in the region. A similar action last took place on September 23, then with 24 jets.

Beijing views democratic Taiwan, which split off from the mainland in 1949, as a breakaway province rather than an independent state, and tries to isolate it internationally.

The People’s Republic rejects any form of formal relations between other countries and the island republic. Only 15 countries worldwide recognize Taiwan and have to forego diplomatic relations with China.
