    > The U.S. military flew three Air Force planes – including two B-52 bombers – near Taiwan on Wednesday morning, the country's Defense Ministry and the U.S. Pacific Air Forces said, after China sent its own bombers and fighter jets for exercises near the island on Sunday and Monday.

    > On Sunday, Taiwan's Air Force also scrambled fighters when Chinese jets and bombers flew through the Bashi Channel to the south of Taiwan and into the western Pacific Ocean before returning via the Miyako Strait, the ministry said.

    > Beijing has called Taiwan "The most important and sensitive issue in China-U.S. relations" and has bolstered its military presence near the island, sailing its new aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait in December and holding large-scale "Encirclement" exercises and bomber training around the island since 2016, when Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen first took office.
