China is going to close the airspace near Taiwan for about half an hour on Sunday. Yan Yu Sin, associated with Taiwan’s Defense Department, says that the no-fly zone will extend to the Air Defense Identification Zone. It covers an area up to 85 nautical miles from the northern coast of the country.
Taiwan’s transport ministry said China later revised it to 27 minutes. Also informed that this step has been taken in view of the things falling from the satellite launch vehicle.
