MILITARY MUM ON REPORT ABOUT INTELLIGENCE WAR WITH BEIJING IN UKRAINE
Taipei, April 30 (CNA) The Military Intelligence Bureau (MIB) of the Ministry of National Defense declined to make any comment Friday on a media report that intelligence agents from the two sides of the Taiwan Strait have engaged in a fierce intelligence war in Ukraine.
The report out of Hong Kong said Taiwan has sent military intelligence agents to Ukraine to gather intelligence about the highly advanced Su-27SK jet fighter as mainland China has purchased scores of this type of warplane from Russia.
Responding to press inquiries about the MIB's view on the report, a spokesman for the bureau said it is the military's established practice to refrain from commenting on any intelligence-related report or speculation.
According to the Hong Kong media report, Taiwan's air force has sent pilots to test-fly the Su-27SK jet fighter. The Air Force General Headquarters said it has no knowledge of the reported event and would not make any comment.
