الصين تحذر من سقوط حطام صاروخ قرب تايوان

April 13, 2023 - قالت وكالة السلامة البحرية الصينية إن الصين ستحظر يوم الأحد دخول السفن إلى منطقة تقع شمال تايوان بسبب احتمال سقوط حطام من صاروخ.

The area around 160km from the Taiwanese capital, Taipei, will be closed from 9:00 am (0100 GMT) to 3:00 pm (0700 GMT), the maritime safety administration of China’s eastern Fujian province said Thursday.

The announcement came after Taiwan’s transport ministry said Wednesday that Beijing planned to impose a no-fly zone north of the island due to “space activities”.

The air restrictions would be in force from 9:30 am to 9:57 am (0130 to 0157 GMT) on Sunday, the ministry said.

China had initially planned a three-day shutdown but had relented following objections from Taiwanese authorities, according to AFP.
