Taiwans Air Force Command has repeatedly said that the Taiwan army can fully grasp the sea and air dynamics around the Taiwan Strait, and can deal with them safely.

Jie Zhong, a senior assistant researcher at Taiwans national policy research foundation, previously said that after the PLA Air Force decided to transform into an expeditionary air force, the Bashi Strait has become an important air corridor for the PLAs systematic air forces to enter the Western Pacific Ocean; strengthening the control over the southern end of the Strait midline and the southwest corner of Taiwans Air Defense Identification Zone has become the PLAs guarantee An important operation for the safety of the northern wing of the air corridor. Therefore, it is worth paying close attention to whether the PLA will go to Taiwan through regular fighter planes in the future, gradually realize effective monitoring in this airspace, and even further reduce the depth of Taiwans air defense, forcing the Taiwan army to retract from the current airspace under investigation and patrol towards Taiwan, and strive for more safety and depth for the northern wing of this air corridor.

With regard to the presence of PLA military aircraft in the Taiwan Strait, Air Force Senior Colonel Zhang Chunhui, a spokesman for the eastern theater, once said that Taiwan and its affiliated islands are a sacred and inseparable part of Chinas territory, and that Chinas armed forces combat readiness cruise is completely legitimate and legitimate, and is a necessary action to be taken in response to the current security situation in the Taiwan Strait and to safeguard national sovereignty. The theater forces are determined and capable of thwarting all separatist activities of Taiwan independence, resolutely safeguard national sovereignty, security and territorial integrity, and resolutely safeguard peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait region.
