The defense ministry reacted after the Liberty Times newspaper printed a satellite picture, downloaded with an iPhone 5, showing a top-secret long-range radar base in the northern county of Hsinchu.

“Regarding images taken by commercial satellites, legally we can do nothing about it,” the ministry’s spokesman David Lo told reporters. “But we’ll ask Apple to lower the resolution of satellite images of some confidential military establishments the way we’ve asked Google in the past,” he said, referring to the Google Earth program.

Apple has not yet received a formal request, according to Bravo, a Taiwan PR company handling its media relations. It declined to speculate how Apple would respond to a request.
