The Chinese media reported that, that the American C-146A Wolfhound plane landed at Taipei airport last Thursday (Taiwan), where he delivered the "special cargo" for Sandra Undirk, appointed as director of the new American Institute in Taiwan (AIT). Beijing believes, that the opening of the new institute is another anti-Chinese step by Washington, as well as the delivery of classified cargo to Taiwan.
The editorial of a major Chinese publication Global Times published an article, which it says literally:
China's Ministry of National Defense calls on US to stop playing with fire.
