國防部於4月15日表示,中共空警500、轟6K、運8、蘇愷30及殲11等各型機多架,中午由中國大陸南部陸續出海,飛經巴士海峽朝東南航向西太平洋進行遠海長航訓練,除轟6K續向北經宮古水道飛返駐地外,餘共機循原航線飛返駐地。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – Several Chinese warplanes transited on April 15 in the Bashi Channel — a waterway between Y’Ami Island of the Philippines and Orchid Island of Taiwan, conducting long-distance flight training towards the west Pacific, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) confirmed in a statement.

國防部指出,中共藉由軍事行動及輿論戰遂行其「文攻武嚇」,企圖改變臺海現狀之事實,此舉無助於臺海和平,更影響區域穩定與安定。

In response, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said that China’s attempt of changing the status quo across the Taiwan Strait both through military operations and public opinion is heavily interfering with regional stability and security.

國防部強調,中共軍機活動全程,國軍均依規定運用聯合情監偵,並派遣機、艦嚴密監偵掌握與應處,確保我國空域與海疆安全,籲請國人安心。

However, the MND stressed that the armed forces applied joint surveillance and dispatched aircraft and warships to prevent foreign forces from entering the airspace and territorial sea.

二架共軍殲11戰機3月31日一度飛越海峽中線,引發各界關注,總統蔡英文宣示,日後如有類似情形,國軍須「強勢驅離」。

After two Chinese Shenyang J-11 fighter jets crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait on March 31 for the first time since 1999, President Tsai Ing-wen ordered the MND to expel any Chinese aircraft if future intrusion occurs.

對此,國防部長嚴德發表示,國軍職責為守護家園,國軍已針對突發狀況細則進行調整、律定,其內容包含維護空防與海峽安全的行動準則。

In response, Minister of National Defense Yen Teh-fa (嚴德發) said that the national army had adjusted the emergency rules on the code of conduct confining airspace defense and territorial sea safety.
