U.S., Chinese Officials To Meet At Pentagon After Jet Intercept

by Wochit 1:15 mins

A U.S. official said U.S. and Chinese military officials will hold talks on rules of behavior at the Pentagon on Wednesday and Thursday, days after the United States denounced a "dangerous" Chinese jet intercept of a U.S. Navy patrol plane. Last Tuesday, a Chinese fighter pilot flew acrobatic maneuvers around the U.S. Navy's P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine and reconnaissance plane, crossing over and under it in international airspace over the South China Sea, the Pentagon said. At one point, the jet flew wingtip-to-wingtip about 10 yards from the Poseidon, then performed a barrel roll over the top of it. The U.S. defense official said other close intercepts occurred in March, April and May. While this week's discussions at the Pentagon were planned long before the recent incidents, they touch on issues at the core of the U.S. concerns about Chinese military behavior: that a Chinese provocation could spiral into a broader crisis sparked by a military miscalculation in the disputed territory.
