Korea’s Mistake on China’s ADIZ Controversy
December 2, 2013
The Republic of Korea appropriately protested China’s November 23 announcement of the creation of the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) through foreign ministry and defense ministry channels last week. But there was some disturbing information that surfaced over the weekend. The ROK defense ministry used already scheduled bilateral talks with China to quietly request that China re-write the ADIZ to remove the overlap with that of Korea.
