China on Thursday accused Japan over trying to deceive the international community following an incident between warplanes from both nations over the East China Sea, Reuters reported. Japan protested after Chinese warplanes flew “abnormally close” to Japanese military aircraft over the East China Sea on Wednesday. China’s Defence Ministry said Japan’s repeated accusations “were aimed at furthering the deception of the international community, smearing the image of our military and manufacturing tensions in the region.” On Wednesday, two Japanese F-15 planes followed a Chinese Tu-154 aircraft and came as close as 30 metres, “seriously affecting China’s flight safety”, the ministry said.
