The South Korean military on Wednesday sent its fighter jets to two Chinese and six Russian military aircraft that entered the South Korean air defense zone. TASR took the information from the Reuters and Jonhap agencies.

Chinese H-6 bombers repeatedly entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) off the southern and northeastern coasts of South Korea without notice this morning, the Seoul General Staff said.


They later re-entered this zone in the Sea of ​​Japan, along with Russian TU-95 bombers and SU-35 fighters. The Chinese and Russian planes, which observers say were apparently taking part in a joint military exercise, did not violate South Korean airspace.

The air defense identification zone is not the country’s airspace, but it is defined in order to identify foreign aircraft in it and prevent accidental collisions.
