  BEIJING, May 29 (ChinaMil) -- "Japan should give a clear explanation of its provocative acts in the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone on May 24 to the international community," said Geng Yansheng, spokesman of the Ministry of National Defense (MND) of the People's Republic of China (PRC), at a regular press conference on May 29, 2014.

  In answering a question that Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera refuted China's accusation that the Japan's Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) has interfered with the China-Russia joint naval drills by saying that Japan's act was a routine alert monitoring, a reasonable act in accordance with the international law, and was not an interference at all, Geng Yansheng said that two JSDF's airplanes entered the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone on the morning of May 24, 2014 without reporting to China, which threatened China's air defense security and interfered with the on-going China-Russia Joint naval drills.

  Geng emphasized that it's just an example of Japan's frequent provocative acts in recent years by sending warships and miltiary jets to approach China's coastal waters to collect intelligence, make dangerous actions, jeopardize the sea and air security and even create tense atmosphere by making troubles from time to time. What's the real motive behind Japan's actions? And what does Japan want to do? Japan should give a clear explanation to the international community.
