China says U.S. should respect China's air defense zone

China says U.S. should respect China's air defense zoneChina said on Thursday the United States should respect its air defense identification zone (ADIZ), after Chinese officials warned a U.S. bomber it was illegally flying inside China’s self-declared zone in the East China Sea. The Pentagon rejected the Chinese call and said it would continue its flight operations in the region. China declared the zone, in which aircraft are supposed to identify themselves to Chinese authorities, in the East China Sea in 2013, which the United States and Japan have refused to recognize.
