Canada accuses China of ‘unprofessional’ behavior in international airspace

Justin Trudeau has said China’s actions in international airspace while Canadian patrol planes monitored North Korea’s sanctions evasion were “extremely troubling”.

Canada has stationed its planes in Japan as the country participates in the multinational effort to implement UN sanctions against North Korea for its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

China People’s Liberation Army planes approached several Royal Canadian Air Force long-range patrol planes between April 26 and May 26, Ottawa said, adding that they did not meet standard safety standards.
