Chinese state-run TV channel CGTN reported that Chinese Su-35 fighter jets were “crossing the Taiwan Strait.”
The message was published 20 minutes before the plane with the American delegation led by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan.
China warned the US authorities against visiting the island, which it considers its territory, and announced military exercises and fighter flights around Taiwan.
On the eve of the visit, Chinese military aircraft and ships not only approached the unofficial border between China and Taiwan, passing through the strait, but also crossed it, according to Reuters.
US warships have positioned themselves east of Taiwan ahead of Pelosi’s visit.
