Taiwan: China "sends 27 fighter jets to the island's air defense zone" after Pelosi's departure
Taiwan said China has sent 27 fighter jets to its air defense zone and 22 of them have crossed the mid-line separating the autonomous island from China, amid rising tensions in the region.
And China has expressed its anger over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, the highest-paid visit by a US official to the island in 25 years, by announcing a series of military exercises it will hold around Taiwan.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned the US ambassador in Beijing and stopped many agricultural imports from Taiwan.
Beijing regards Taiwan as Chinese territory, but Taiwan rejects China's claims and vows to defend itself.
