U.S. Says Chinese Fighter Jet Flew Dangerously Close to American Plane
The aircraft of China was conducting routine operations over the South China Sea on Dec. 21, and it was flying dangerously. On Thursday, the U.S. military said that the planes collided because of it.
The U.S. military said in their statement that the American pilot was there to avoid the collision, after blaming of Pilot of a J-11 jet, in China. The Chinese pilot flew near the nose at just 20 feet. An Unsafe maneuver.
The US Indo-Pacific Command said that they expect all states in the region to use international airspace safely and keep international laws in mind. This statement is also coming on Thursday. The region is in command of the United States Armed Forces.
A spokesman for the command also said in an email, referring to the People’s Liberation Army of China that We have seen red alerts and a ringing increase in the number of unprovoked air intercepts and collisions at sea by the PLA. Aircraft and ships.
It is a matter of grave concern for America. The latest incident by PLA shows a worrying trend of unsafe and dangerous interception practices
America had waited more than a week to publish this incident, the spokesperson said that this was because of verification, and clearance procedures. The spokesperson said it all takes time.
On the other side, China had not responded yet, even the Foreign Ministry has not said a word about the claim that their pilot flowed the jet dangerously.
Wang Wenbin, a spokesperson for China pointed at the U.S. by saying that they were looking into our region. He said that the provocative and dangerous actions of the United States are the root cause of maritime security issues.
Though American allies Australia and Canada, also blamed China, China is intercepting Pacific water in unsafe law. These debates led to many dangerous collisions. Recalling 2001, a Chinese fighter jet rammed a US Navy surveillance plane over the South China Sea, killing the Chinese pilot and forcing the US plane to make an emergency landing on Hainan Island.
These clashes will disturb the sea region of the southern area and maybe it will impact on foreign relations of US-China.
