The Chinese ministry, in its statement has expressed serious concerns over the “interference” of two Japanese F-15 fighter jets in Chinese Air Forces, training in the Western Pacific. A close encounter took place between the Chinese and Japanese jets.

Statement released by the Chinese ministry said that the Japanese Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) scrambled two of its F-15s against the Chinese warplanes that were on a routine training exercise in the Western Pacific, over the Miyako Strait.

“The Japanese jets endangered the safety of the Chinese aircraft and the crew by approaching at a close range and launching jamming shells” said the ministry spokesperson Senior Colonel Yang Yujun.

He also said that the exercises were within its annual training plan and were not directed at any particular country or target. He shed some light on the Miyako Strait that it is an international waterway and the Chinese training is in line with the international laws and practices related to it.

The spokesman of Chinese Ministry called on to avoid any further incidents and asked to respect the “interests of China-Japan relations”
