China vai proibir a navegação a norte de Taiwan no domingo

April 13, 2023 - A China vai proibir a navegação numa área a norte de Taiwan no próximo
domingo pela possibilidade de queda de detritos de um foguetão, disse uma autoridade marítima provincial.

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.
