Kerry Criticizes China's Air Defense Zone
The People's Republic of China announced on Saturday that it is setting up an "air defense identification zone" over disputed islets in the East China Sea. The Japanese-administrated Senkaku Islands are claimed by both Japan and China and are covered by a U.S.-Japan security treaty. According to the ministry's website, aircrafts flying over the zone must identify with security measures or face "defensive emergency measures." Secretary of State John Kerry strongly criticized China's decision and urged them to use caution, asserting that the United States would honor its alliance with Japan should the area be attacked.
