The nuclear-capable bombers began a joint flight over the Sea of ​​Japan on Tuesday as the U.S. president met with the heads of Japan, Australia and India, Japanese and U.S. officials said.

Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said that after the Chinese and Russian fighter jets approached Japanese airspace on Tuesday, the Japanese fighter jets took off scrambled to carry out warning and expulsion missions.  Nobuo Kishi told a news conference broadcast online that Tokyo had expressed “serious concerns” to China and Russia through diplomatic channels.

“We think this action during the Quartet summit is more provocative than it has been in the past,” he said, adding that it was the fourth such incident since November last year.

 Nobuo Kishi said that two Chinese military planes flew over the Sea of ​​Japan from the East China Sea, and then flew to the East China Sea with two Russian military planes.  Later, two other Chinese military planes replaced the previous two and flew to the Pacific with the Russian military planes.

A Russian spy plane also flew over the high seas from the northern island of Hokkaido to the Noto Peninsula on Japan’s main island, he said.  Nobuo Kishi said none of the planes entered Japanese airspace.

Separately, the South Korean military said it urgently dispatched fighter jets to drive away after at least four Chinese and four Russian military planes entered its air defense zone on Tuesday.

It is unclear if the two incidents are related, or if any of the same military aircraft were involved.
