Detected Closed Captioning: China Told Japan To “get Used To It” After It Flew Six Warplanes Near Two Southern Japanese Islands During A Military Exercise. On July 13, Japan’s Defense Ministry Said That Half A Dozen Chinese H-6 Bombers Were Spotted Over The Miyako Strait Between Miyako And Okinawa. Japan Called The Sighting “unusual,” But Noted That There Had Been No Violation Of Japanese Airspace. China’s Defense Ministry, In Response, Argued That It Was “legal And Proper” For Its Aircraft To Operate In The Airspace And That It Would Continue To Do So According To “mission Requirements.” The Ministry Added That Japan “should Not Make A Fuss About Nothing Or Over-interpret, It Will Be Fine Once They Get Used To It.” The Miyako Strait Is Northeast Of Self-ruled Taiwan, Which China Claims As Its Own.
