BEIJING, Feb.27 -- A US P-8A anti-submarine patrol aircraft flew through the Taiwan Strait on February 27, and the US side hyped this publicly. Army Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson for the Chinese PLA Eastern Theater Command, released a statement on Monday, declaring that "the PLA Eastern Theater Command had organized troops to track and monitor the US aircraft in the whole course, and had everything under control".

China firmly opposes the US's action, which has deliberately disrupted the regional situation and jeopardized the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, stressed the spokesperson.

According to the spokesperson, the troops of the PLA Eastern Theater Command remain on high alert at all times to resolutely safeguard China's national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
