"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", Reuters reported, citing an air force statement.

The Miyako Strait is between Japan's islands of Miyako and Okinawa, to the northeast of self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as its own. While Taiwan monitored the situation, the Japanese Self-Defense Force scrambled fighters in response. There was no violation of Japanese airspace.

Beijing has blasted Tokyo for hyping the exercises, calling them part of "regular" drills, while Japan has said it will keep a steady eye on the "expanding and increasing" actions of the Chinese military in the area. It is concerned that they could be used to restrict free movement and extend China's strategic reach.
