China says South Korea’s air defense zone not territorial airspace


BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s foreign ministry said on Monday that South Korea’s air space identification zone is not a territorial airspace and all countries enjoy freedom of movement there.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks after South Korea said two Chinese bombers and two Russian bombers entered the Korea Air Defence Identification Zone (KADIZ) together early on Tuesday.
