Japan shoots down rumor of firing warning shots at Chinese plane

Japan shoots down rumor of firing warning shots at Chinese plane

By Mei Jingya, Sina English

Japan’s Sankei Shimbun reported yesterday the defense ministry is mulling to authorize its Self-defense Force to fire "warning shots" if it encounters China's surveillance plane over the Diaoyu Islands.  

When asked by the Chinese Radio Network to confirm the report, the Japanese defense ministry said they had no such plan at all.  

Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Suga said at a press briefing Thursday morning that the government has never authorized the so-called plan of allowing its jets to fire at Chinese planes.
