Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) The rockets used by China to send satellites into space on two consecutive days posed no threat to Taiwan, according to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND).

The MND detected satellite launches from China's Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on Monday at noon and Tuesday morning.

Both rockets traveled toward the Indian Ocean above the atmosphere, posing no danger to Taiwan, the MND said in brief statements on Monday and Tuesday after the launches.

Taiwan's armed forces were on alert and monitored the rockets' paths, the MND said.
