Overseas Network, January 23, according to Yonhap News Agency, South Koreas Ministry of Defense said on 23 that afternoon, Japans Maritime Self-Defense Force patrol aircraft again close to the South Korean naval vessels flying. South Korean Defense Ministry said, South Korean Defense Minister Zheng Jingdou and South Korean Joint Staff Headquarters are taking corresponding measures. We will take a position on this.
On December 20, 2018, a South Korean destroyer was accused by Japan of using fire-control radar to lock in Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force P-1 patrol aircraft flying nearby during a maritime search and rescue mission. The ROK is deeply disappointed by the fact that it has not used tracking radar on Japanese patrol aircraft and that Japanese patrol aircraft are flying at low altitudes near South Korean warships carrying out humanitarian relief. Since then, the war of words between the two sides has escalated.
