Chinese aircraft trespasses South Korea, Japan "airspace"

South Korea scrambled fighter jets after a Chinese military aircraft trespassed into the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone, or KADIZ, according to Seoul.

South Korea's joint chiefs of staff said one Chinese aircraft entered territorial airspace, local newspaper Asia Business reported Monday.

"Today at 9:30 a.m. we detected a military aircraft of Chinese origin entering the KADIZ from the southwest side, near Ieodo Island," the joint chiefs stated, according to Yonhap.

"We immediately deployed our air force fighters."

Ieodo Island, or Socotra Rock, is a submerged rock in the Yellow Sea that is also claimed by China.

The joint chiefs added the Chinese plane left KADIZ at 9:55 a.m., then cruised through Japan's Air Defense Identification Zone, or JADIZ.

The Chinese aircraft left both airspaces by 2:05 p.m., Seoul said.
