Taiwan Negotiates With Japan, Philippines To Find Alternative Aviation Routes: Report

NB BUREAU

Taiwan is negotiating with neighbouring Japan and the Philippines to find alternative aviation routes after China announced drills in the seas encircling Taiwan, Reuters reported on Wednesday quoting Taiwan’s official Central News Agency (CNA).

Taiwan’s government has issued strong condemnation of China’s plans for live fire drills in locations around the island, media reports said.

Such drills “have invaded Taiwan’s territorial space” and “amount to a blockade of Taiwan’s air and sea space”, the military said, as reported by BBC.

CNA reported, citing transport minister Wang Kwo-tsai, that there is no need for global chip manufacturing hub Taiwan to find alternatives for sea transport because ships can avoid Chinese drill zones.
