China’s military said it had conducted a combat readiness patrol in the direction of the Taiwan Strait after its defense ministry condemned a visit to Taiwan by a US Congressional delegation it said had arrived on a military aircraft.

A Chinese military spokesperson said the patrol was aimed at the “seriously wrong” words and actions of “relevant countries” on the Taiwan issue and the activities of pro-independence forces in Taiwan. Taiwan’s defense ministry said six Chinese military aircraft entered its southwestern air defense zone on Tuesday, including four J-16 fighter jets and two surveillance planes. Taiwan Premier Su Tseng-Chang told that Taiwan-U.S. relations are “very important” and that he respects “mutual visits between friends”.
