China warns Japan over reported plan to shoot down drones | idrw.org

China warned Japan on Tuesday against "playing up" tension after Tokyo reportedly approved a plan to intercept and shoot down any foreign drones if they ignore warnings to leave Japanese airspace.

China's foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks in response to a report by Japan's Kyodo news agency on Sunday, which cited a "source close to the government," that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe approved the plan.

If confirmed, the move would signal Tokyo's readiness to unilaterally respond to an increasingly acrimonious territorial dispute with Beijing over a set of islands, known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan. Last month, a Chinese military drone was reportedly spotted near Okinawa.

"Due to historical reasons, Japan's political moves in the military and security fields have always received high attention from its Asian neighbors and the international community," Hua said during a regular press briefing.

"For some time, Japan has been deliberately playing up the so-called external threat and ratcheting up tension and confrontation between regional countries and using that as an excuse for constant military build-up," the spokeswoman said.

Hua said, "(China) cannot but be on high alert to Japan's real intent."

"I want to reiterate that the Diaoyu Islands are an integral part of China's territory," Hua said, adding, "(China) will resolutely respond to any external provocation."

Relations between South Korea and Japan have also remained frosty due to Japan's repeated claims to South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo and its unrepentant attitude toward its wartime crimes.

This warning is for real.

Shooting down a drone is act of war that will bear consequence.

This is strange. Wouldn't deliberately trespassing into a sovereign nation's airspace be an act of war? Anything that Japan does to follow it would merely be a response to defend itself. The article clearly states that Japn plans to shoot only those drones that violate it's airspace.

In a disputed place like Diaoyu Island, both sides can claim it's a trespassing into their airspace.

What kind of report can show you that?
News report.

Like Global Times, which reported that India "still lags behind in infrastructure construction, but its society is highly supportive of developing nuclear power and the West chooses to overlook India's disregard of nuclear and missile control treaties" and warned India not to "over-estimate its strength". Subsequently, they also claimed that although India may have missiles that can reach all parts of China, India stands "no chance in an overall arms race" with the country.

The shrill whine and making ado over nothing indicates that.

What is so great about a missile test that one reacts like as if one is stung?

It is time you all wake up.

China is really not that strong as you think it is.

Don't get delusional.

If it were, then it would have done a South China Sea on India.

And anyway the noose is tightening around China.

Yes.

Your exhaustion comes too fast and you are then a spent force.

We are aware why you no longer can flex your muscle at will, as earlier, in the SCS.

The noose tightens!
