China on Monday questioned Australia’s claim that a Chinese warship had fired laser at the surveillance aircraft while in flight over Australia’s northern approaches, saying the allegation does not square up with facts.

The Chinese Defence Ministry also released two photos taken by the Chinese warship in the statement, saying the Australian aircraft was very close to the Chinese warship, and placed sonar buoys around it.
