BEIJING-Security disputes between China and Japan continue as China’s Defense officials on Friday “denounced” the presence of military aircrafts from Japan reportedly monitoring the southwest airspace of the East China Sea oil platform, causing disruption to its routine patrolling of the area.
Xinhua has reported that China sent two J-10 fighters “to monitor the Japanese fighter jets tailing the Y-8 as well as another Japanese reconnaissance plane spotted in the same airspace.”
The official press agency of People’s Republic of China also quoted officials from China’s Ministry of National Defense, saying that “Japanese military aircraft have been increasingly active in closely scouting Chinese aircraft.”
Chinese officials have also asked Japan to “respect relevant international laws,” Xinua reports said.
However China maintained they are ready to defend its territory and air defense force.
