The development comes after Taiwan scrambled aircrafts late last month to "drive away" two Chinese fighter jets which it said flew past a maritime border in the Taiwan Strait, Sputnik reported.


The Chinese navy warned off a French warship which entered the Taiwan Strait earlier this month, Beijing said on Thursday, adding that it lodged an official protest with Paris over the move.

According to the Chinese Defence Ministry, the French warship “illegally entered China's territorial waters” on 7 April.

This comes after Taiwan's Ministry of National Defence (MND) said earlier this month that two Chinese J-11 fighter jets crossed the Taiwan Strait's "median line" on 31 March, prompting Taipei to scramble several aircraft in order to intercept the warplanes.
