The claim was, over the weekend, that a South Korean warship used its targeting radar to aim at a Japanese patrol plane.
Today, Seoul’s defense ministry reiterated… that it did not use its targeting radar… but a different system,… and was trying to find a North Korean boat that had gone adrift.
For details we turn to our Park Ji-won.
South Korea’s defense ministry says the destroyer’s fire-control radar was not directed at the Japanese aircraft, and in fact the targeting system was never used.
Rather it was a search radar employed in a routine search operation.
