China Demands US “Cease Immediately” Provocative Spy Plane Missions Near Its Borders:

Just days after a report that two Chinese J-11 fighter jets buzzed a US spy plane above the South China Sea, Beijing has officially escalated its displeasure at US surveillance up the chain of command and as Reuters reports, Beijing has demanded an end to all U.S. surveillance near China.  “It must be pointed out that U.S. military planes frequently carry out reconnaissance in Chinese coastal waters, seriously endangering Chinese maritime security,” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei Hong told reporters, adding that  “we demand that the United States immediately cease this type of close reconnaissance activity to avoid having this sort of incident happening again.”
