Japan releases video of S. Korean warship’s radar lock on Japanese plane

Agency News

Tokyo, Dec 28 : The Japanese Defense Ministry on Friday released video footage of an incident last week in which a South Korean warship locked radar on a Japanese patrol plane.

The ministry has said that a South Korean Navy ship directed fire-control radar at a Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF) P-1 patrol aircraft off the coast of Ishikawa Prefecture, central Japan, around 1500 hrs local time on Dec 20.

In the 13-minute-long footage taken by the Japanese patrol plane, the South Korean warship locked fire-control radar at least twice.

One of the crew members of the Japanese MSDF P-1 plane talked to the destroyer in English three times through different frequencies in order to confirm its intention.
