The defence ministry stated 25 aircraft including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers entered its so-called air defence identification zone (ADIZ) yesterday (12).

The incursion is the largest in a year and comes as the US warns against an "increasingly aggressive China".

Beijing views Taiwan as a breakaway province.

The latest Chinese mission involved 18 fighter jets, as well as four bombers, which can carry nuclear weapons, two anti-submarine aircraft and an early warning aircraft, Taiwan stated.

China has carried out regular flights over the international waters between the southern part of Taiwan and the Taiwanese-controlled Pratas Islands in the South China Sea in recent months.

Monday's incursion also saw the jets fly into the ADIZ to the southwest of Taiwan near the Pratas Islands.
