nu maar hopen dat ze allemaal lief doen tegen elkaar...quote:China warns Japan to ‘get used to’ its bomber flights near Okinawa
CHINA this weekend sent a flight of six nuclear-capable bombers over disputed islands near Okinawa, warning Japan such stand-offs will become ‘the new norm’.
Beijing announced at the weekend that its H6K bombers had flown “several” long-range drills over the Bashi Channel and Miyako Strait during the past week.
The strategic Miyako strait sits between the Sakishima islands — scene of fierce fighting during the last days of World War II by the British Pacific Fleet — and Okinawa, linking mainland Japan with the northern tip of Taiwan.
Whoever controls the waterways has access to rich fish stocks, underwater resources — and military control over access to shipping lanes of vital importance to regional powers Japan and China.
‘GET USED TO IT’
“China’s air force over the past week conducted multiple drills far out at sea, with H-6K bombers and many other types of aircraft flying through the Bashi Channel and Miyako Strait, testing actual battle capabilities over the sea,” a spokesman told the state-run CGTN news service.
