(12-04 19:19)

Fifty-five airlines in 19 countries and three regions have reported flight plans to China over the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, a spokesman said in Beijing.
“hina has gained understanding from an increasing number of countries over the establishment of the zone. People have come to realize it is a safe and cooperative, rather than risky and confrontational area," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.
“We are willing to keep in touch with relevant parties over technical issues and maintain flight safety and order, on the basis of equality and mutual respect," he said.
He reiterated China's ADIZ is aimed to defending its national sovereignty, territorial and airspace security, as well as safeguarding flight safety and is in accord with international laws and practices.—Xinhua
