China claims that these measures are being taken as part of national defense. They also insist that in no way is this directed in a negative way towards any country. Japan directly affected by the new flight plans is reportedly "concerned" and it's largest ally the United States is as well. US Secretary of State John Kerry warns that this new zone could lead to incidents. However China appears not to be interested with the US concerns. Directly telling them to butt out.
