The Chinese government announced the establishment of the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone on Nov 23. It is a necessary measure for China to protect its State sovereignty and territorial and airspace security, Geng Yansheng, spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense, said on Tuesday.

It is conducive to maintaining flying safety in international airspace, and is in line with international laws and conventions.

The announcement of the East China Sea ADIZ has earned understanding and recognition from an increasing number of countries and peoples, but misunderstandings or even distortions also exist, Geng said.
