BEIJING, China- The Chinese Defense Ministry has accused Japan of hyping up a “close encounter” of military aircraft that ensued between the Japanese F15 fighter planes and the Air Force of China’s People’s Liberation Army, saying that the ground accusation aims to deceive the international community and “smear the images of China and Chinese military.”
In the video released by China Military Online, two F15 fighter plane from Japan closely followed the China’s Tu 154 on June 11 during the Air Force of the People’s Liberation Army’s routine patrol missions in the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). The Chinese military estimated that the distance between the Tu 154 and the two Japanese F15 fighter planes is around 30 meters from 10:17 to 10:28.

Yeah, China has exactly no room to complain here considering the number of times they've buzzed aircraft and pushed the limits, including the collision with the US EP-3C that almost caused it to crash.
