Taiwan has protested what it called a "reckless" and "provocative" flight by two Chinese fighter jets across the so-called median line of the Taiwan Strait, the country said late Sunday.

"At 11 a.m., March 31, 2 PLAAF J-11 jets violated the long-held tacit agreement by crossing the median line of the #Taiwan Strait," the official Twitter account of the Taiwanese Foreign Ministry said in a tweet. "It was an intentional, reckless & provocative action. We've informed regional partners & condemn #China for such behavior."

PLAAF is the acronym for the People's Liberation Army Air Force.
