Pentagon spokesman stressed that Washington “have consistently opposed any Chinese proposals that would limit US operations in the air or sea” in international space. According to him, “it places US alliances at risk.”As Pool noted, the discussion unfolded in connection with the incident on August 19 when Chinese Air Force intercepted an American Boeing P-8 Poseidon spy plane. 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.
On November 12 it was reported that the USA and China are going to sign two agreements that will help them to sidestep miscommunication between armed forces.
One of the agreements envisages creation of a mechanism that will allow the parties to inform each other about major maneuvers, military exercises. The second document sets out the conduct standards for the militaries meeting at sea or in the air.
