The United States warned China against sparking tensions in international airspace after Japan accused Beijing of "dangerous manoeuvres" above disputed seas.

Japan has alleged that a Chinese fighter on Saturday flew within roughly 30 meters of a Japanese OP-3C surveillance plane above the waters where the countries' air defence identification zones overlap.

Another Chinese SU-27 fighter also flew close to a Japanese YS-11EB plane in the same airspace.

But Beijing hit back at Tokyo's claims, saying two Japanese F-15 fighter jets came recklessly close to a Chinese Y-8 transport aircraft in an incident on November 23rd.
