A Russian fighter jet has intercepted a Norwegian military plane over the Barents Sea, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

“A Norwegian P-3C Orion patrol aircraft was spotted on Sept. 4 over the neutral waters of the Barents Sea approaching the state border of Russia,” the ministry’s Zvezda broadcasting service said in a statement.

A MiG-31 fighter of the Russian Northern Fleet took off and the Norwegian plane eventually flew away from the Russian border, it said.

The Russian jet strictly complied with international rules for the use of airspace, it added.
