Tokyo summons China envoy over 'dangerous' flights
(06-12 14:48)

Japan summoned the Chinese ambassador to complain about fighter jets flying ''dangerously'' close to two of its military planes over the East China Sea, officials said.
In the latest confrontation between the two sides, Tokyo says two Chinese SU-27 jets flew just 30 meters away from its aircraft in a spot where the two countries' air defense zones overlap.
''It was an action that was extremely regrettable, and which cannot be tolerated,'' said top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga.
It was the second time in less than three weeks that Tokyo has accused Beijing of playing chicken in the skies near the hotly-contested Japanese-controlled Senkaku islands, which China also claims and calls the Diaoyus.--AFP
