BEIJING, April. 28 -- A US P-8A anti-submarine patrol aircraft flew through the Taiwan Strait on April 28, and the US side hyped this publicly. Army Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson for the Chinese PLA Eastern Theater Command, released a statement on Friday, declaring that "the PLA Eastern Theater Command had organized troops to track and monitor the US aircraft in the whole course".
Snr. Col. Shi pointed out that the recent frequent provocative actions made by the US warships and planes have fully proved that the US is a saboteur of peace and stability as well as a creator of security risks in the Taiwan Strait.
The troops of the PLA Eastern Theater Command remain on high alert at all times to resolutely safeguard China’s sovereignty，security and regional peace and stability, stressed the spokesperson.
