According to the news of Yonhap, in a statement made by the South Korean General Staff, it was stated that Chinese and Russian warplanes entered the KADIZ region between 11.52 and 13:49 local time.
It was stated in the statement that the planes did not violate South Korea’s airspace, and that the planes in question left the region one after another.
In the statement, it was noted that the planes were detected before entering KADIZ, and planes from the Air Force were deployed to the region in case of possible accidents.
It is noteworthy that the entry of 4 Russian and 4 Chinese warplanes into KADIZ comes after the defense ministers of the USA, South Korea and Japan, who met within the scope of the Shangri-La Dialogue held in Singapore, agreed to strengthen the trilateral security cooperation.
The Air Defense and Identification Area (ADIZ), which has no definition in international law and is not controlled by any international authority, is generally declared unilaterally by the countries.
The identification area does not include civilian aircraft that do not intend to violate the defined airspace of the country, but military aircraft entering the area are evaluated as a potential threat and warned.
