Pentagon spokesman stressed that Washington “have consistently opposed any Chinese proposals that would limit US operations in the air or sea” in international space.

This happened in international airspace over the South China Sea 217 km to the east of Hainan Island.
The US government brought this item to the attention of the Chinese government. The Pentagon has accused Beijing that the interception was made in a dangerous and unprofessional way, warning that the situation could have a negative impact on military cooperation between the two countries.
