The Chinese defense ministry said its bombers’ recent flyover of the Miyako Strait was a regular training exercise and the country’s air force will carry out more far-sea exercises in accordance with international practice.

When asked about the Japanese air force’s response to the Chinese H-6 bombers that passed through the Miyako Strait on July 13, Ren Guoqiang, spokesperson for China’s Ministry of National Defense, said in a written statement that there is no need to panic or hype up the lawful actions of the Chinese military.

The Japanese side should get used to it, the spokesperson added.

A picture relased by Japanese defense ministry shows a Chinese H-6 bomber flying over the Miyako Strait.

Despite being a well acknowledged international flight passage, the Miyako Strait is also considered a strategic entryway into the Western Pacific between the islands of Miyako and Okinawa.

According to the Japanese defense ministry, Chinese air force flew six H-6 bombers in two separate batches through the Miyako Strait. It also released pictures of the bombers taken by aircraft of Japan’s Air Self-Defense Force at close range, which were sent to follow the Chinese military aircraft in case of an emergency.
