Canadian military aircraft operating in Asia have been repeatedly “buzzed” by Chinese jets at dangerously close distances, Ottawa says.

Canada says that its aircrews have had to alter their path to avoid collisions while operating in international airspace near North Korea.

It has called the Chinese behaviour unprofessional and potentially risky.

China has not commented on the incidents, which Canada says are being addressed diplomatically.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he took the situation “very seriously” and had ordered officials to raise it with their Chinese counterparts.

“The fact that China would have chosen to do this is extremely troubling,” he said, according to Reuters news agency.
