The military has staged a joint air defense exercise with the army, navy and air force.

On early Tuesday morning, F-16 fighter jets took off from a military base near northeastern Hualien County to test the armed forces’ air defense capability and contingencies.

The exercise came two days after a Chinese aircraft carrier passed through the Taiwan Strait. The defense ministry had monitored the aircraft carrier’s passage, which was closely followed by US and Japanese warships.
