Several Chinese warplanes fly close to sensitive Taiwan Strait amid Nancy Pelosi’s visit

Several Chinese warplanes flew close to the median line of the sensitive Taiwan Strait on Tuesday morning as tensions mounted on news US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi was set to visit Taiwan during the day.

Reports indicate that several Chinese warships have stayed close to unofficial buffer in the waterway since Monday, adding that Taiwan had dispatched aircraft to monitor the situation.

Taiwan’s defense ministry is yet to officially comment on the Chinese fly-by.
