Japan summons China envoy over fighter jets’ ‘near miss’

13 June 2014 09:58:10 The Asian Age

Japan on Thursday summoned the Chinese ambassador, as the two sides traded accusations of blame for a near miss involving fighter jets over the East China Sea, the second similar incident in less than a month. In the latest confrontation in a long-running territorial dispute, Tokyo says two Chinese SU-27 jets flew as close as just 30 metres to its aircraft in a spot where the two countries’ air defence zones overlap. “It was an action that was extremely regrettable, and which cannot be tolerated,” said top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga, of the Wednesday incident. 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. “It comes after a similar event which occurred last month,” Mr Suga said. “The government will continue urging China to prevent an accident and restrain itself.” Japan’s vice minister for foreign affairs, Akitaka Saiki, called the Chinese ambassador to Japan, Cheng Yonghua, to the ministry, where he said similar manoeuvres “could lead to a real accident”, according to Kyodo News. China hit back, insisting Japanese pilots had been at fault and that Tokyo was lying to the international community about China’s behaviour.

Missing jet search to delve deeper

23 April 2014 08:10:16 timesofmalta.com

The hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane is expected to see more powerful, deeper-delving, sonar equipment used after the latest Indian Ocean search failed to yield any clues. Australia's search co-ordination centre said a robotic submarine, the US Navy's Bluefin 21, had so far covered more than 80% of the 120-square-mile sea bed zone off the country's west coast, creating a three-dimensional sonar map of the ocean floor, but nothing of interest had been found. The 2.8-mile deep search area is a circle 12 miles wide around an area where sonar equipment picked up a signal on April 8 consistent with a plane's black boxes. The black box beacons' batteries would by now be dead. Australia's defence minister David Johnston said the country was consulting Malaysia, China and the United States on the next phase of the search for the Boeing 777 that went missing on March 8, which is likely to be announced next week. Mr Johnston said more powerful towed side-scan commercial sonar equipment would probably be deployed, similar to the remote-controlled subs that found the Titanic 12,500 feet under the Atlantic Ocean in 1985 and the Australian Second World War wreck HMAS Sydney in the...

Searchers checking latest objects for link to jet

29 March 2014 05:58:19 WN.com - World News

ROB GRIFFITH Associated Press= PERTH, Australia (AP) — Objects spotted floating in a new search area for debris from the missing Malaysian jetliner need to be recovered and inspected before they can be linked to the plane, Australian officials said Saturday. Planes from China and Australia were combing the newly targeted area off the west coast of Australia after several objects were spotted Friday, including two rectangular items that were blue and gray, and ships on the scene will attempt to recover them, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. "The objects cannot be verified or discounted as being from MH370 until they are relocated and recovered by ships," the authority said in...

Missing jet – weather halts search

28 March 2014 08:06:42 timesofmalta.com

High winds and icy weather halted the air search yesterday for a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet presumed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, just as new satellite images emerged showing what could be a large debris field from the plane. The latest possible sightings of wreckage from Flight MH370, which went missing 19 days ago, were captured by Thai and Japanese satellites in roughly the same remote expanse of sea as earlier images reported by France, Australia and China. “We detected floating objects, perhaps more than 300,” Anond Snidvongs, the head of Thailand’s space technology development agency, told Reuters. “We have never said that the pieces are part of MH370 but have so far identified them only as floating objects.” A Japanese satellite also captured images of 10 objects which could be part of the plane, Kyodo news agency quoted the government as saying yesterday. An international search team of 11 military and civilian aircraft and five ships had been heading for an area where more than 100 objects that could be from the Boeing 777 had been identified by French satellite pictures earlier this week, but severe weather forced the planes to turn back. “The...
