China failed to respond to Japan, South Korea and the U.S. B-52s Air Force flights— its lack of a response so far to the flights that flew through the new maritime air defense zone.
Japanese and South Korean military aircraft flew through disputed airspace over the East China Sea without informing China, officials said on Thursday. The flights defy air defense zone added to the international defiance of rules Beijing says it has imposed in the East China Sea.
Beijing began demanding Saturday that passing aircraft identify themselves and accept Chinese instructions or face consequences in an East China Sea zone, according to report.
China on Saturday issued a list of requirements for all foreign aircraft passing through the area, regardless of whether they were headed into Chinese airspace, and said its armed forces would adopt “defensive emergency measures” against aircraft that don’t comply. IMAGE / AP PHOTOS
