Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Fishermen from Taiwan have joined a dispute over a chain of islands, which China and Japan also say belongs to them. The Taiwanese vessels left the area after Japanese coast guard ships fired water cannon on the fleet of fishing boats. Japan's coastguard said it warned the boats and television footage showed water being sprayed on the Taiwanese ships. Taiwan is the third country to lay claim to the islands, which China and Japan also say belong to them.

Dispute in the East China Sea: A Model Diplomacy Case Study
Elizabeth Economy and Sheila Smith, Council on Foreign Relations senior fellows, provide an overview of “Dispute in the East China Sea”—a scenario from CFR’s Model Diplomacy (https://modeldiplomacy.cfr.org), a free multimedia simulation program that engages students through role-play to understand the challenges of shaping U.S. foreign policy in an interconnected world. Smith lays out a basic understanding of the dispute, highlighting the East China Sea as a maritime boundary for four East Asian nations: China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. However as evidenced by current headlines, the East China Sea is most often thought of in the context of the bilateral dispute between Japan and China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands. Economy notes that Japan administers the disputed islands, but that sovereignty over the area is unclear. This is important because, according to international law, the nation that has sovereignty is entitled to develop potentially valuable resources within the islands’ 200-mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ). The Unites States recognizes that China will assert its interests in new ways as it grows and becomes more powerful, says Economy, but seeks to ensure that it does so in a responsible manner. Smith says she is hopeful that the dispute over the islands can be resolved through diplomacy, adding that “we are watching, we are waiting, we are trying to determine” how China’s rise will affect other nations.

Breaking News: Taiwan Will Spark Tensions In South China Sea
Breaking News: Taiwan Will Spark Tensions In South China Sea Taiwan, normally quiet in the tense six-way South China Sea sovereignty dispute, is likely to raise suspicion among the other claimants with a live-fire drill near the sea’s biggest natural island, observers say. The Taiwanese coast guard will conduct “routine” live-fire exercises November 21-23 around Taiping Island in the Spratly archipelago, a spokesman for the agency said Monday. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense declined to say whether naval units would participate. Because Taiwan normally says little in the broader South China Sea dispute — it controls just two of about 500 tiny islets — and has no formal diplomatic relations with the other five claimants, its activity may cause pushback as other disputants, including China, try to get along better, say analysts. “I don’t know what is meant by routine here, but if it is some sort of military exercise, I don’t think it is routine,” said Oh Ei Sun, who teaches international studies at Singapore Nanyang University. “That would definitely upset the status quo,” he said. “And you have to prepare to face the consequences. That means others will stage similar exercises and there will be a new round of mutual condemnations.”

What does China want? | The Economist
An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

China and Japan smooth over East China Sea island row
China and Japan have agreed to try to reduce tensions over a disputed chain of islands in the East China Sea. Beijing officials said a crisis management mechanism had been set up to prevent the situation from worsening. The strategically important islands, known as Diaoyu by China and Senkaku by Japan, are controlled by Japan. Meanwhile Japanese PM Shinzo Abe said the ground was being laid for a bilateral meeting between him and Chinese President Xi Jinping next week. "Both Japan and China are coming to the view that it would benefit not just the two countries but regional stability if a summit is held," he said, quoted by Reuters news agency. The meeting is expected to take place on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Beijing on Monday and Tuesday. If it happens it will be the first proper exchange between the two leaders since they came to power, in 2012 and 2013 respectively. A territorial row over islands in the East China Sea has put strain on ties between China and Japan The Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement that senior Chinese and Japanese officials had reached a four-point agreement, which included a recognition of their "different positions" over the islands. They had agreed "to prevent the situation from aggravating through dialogue and consultation and establish crisis management mechanisms to avoid contingencies," the statement added. However, Reuters later quoted Mr Abe as saying that Japan's position on the islands was unchanged. The dispute over the islands has become particularly acrimonious over the last two years. The BBC's Martin Patience in Beijing says it has inflamed nationalistic sentiment in both countries and damaged economic ties. The islands are close to important shipping lanes, offer rich fishing grounds and lie near potential oil and gas reserves. In 2012 Japan moved to purchase the islands from their private owners, sparking violent anti-Japanese protests in China. In November 2013, China announced the creation of a new air defence identification zone, which would require any aircraft in the zone - which covers the islands - to comply with rules laid down by Beijing. Japan labelled the move a "unilateral escalation" and said it would ignore it. The two countries also differ over Japan's actions in China during World War II.

Japanese Police Arrest Chinese East China Sea Activists
Japanese police have arrested five Chinese activists after they landed on a group of islands in the disputed waters of the East China Sea. Both China and Japan claim ownership of the islands, called Diaoyu by the Chinese and Senkaku by the Japanese. Although the islands are uninhabited, the Chinese activists sought to use their landing as a mean of strengthening China's claim. Tokyo has formally protested the activists' visit to the islands. [Osamu Fujimura, Chief Cabinet Secretary, Japan:] "We have just lodged our complaints via diplomatic channels in both China and Hong Kong. As directed by Prime minister Yoshihiko Noda, we will be coordinating with the various ministries to caution, monitor and deal with them within Japanese law and when necessary take appropriate action." The fourteen activists sailed to the island chain on a fishing boat. They hailed from Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Japanese coastguards gave chase, firing water cannons and attempting to block their landing. Still, seven made it ashore. Five of them were instantly arrested.

China causing trouble in East China Sea and Senakaku Islands AGAIN
The commies in commie-led China are causing trouble in the East China Sea, east of Kyushu and the Ryukyu Islands (Japan) the Japan China Median Line (a division in the EEZ -- Exclusive Economic Zone). Recently the Japanese television station NHK (日本放送協会, Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai; official English name: Japan Broadcasting Corporation) aired a video showing the commies set up a gas rig in the ocean right on the division line (Kashi gas field / Tianwaitian in Chinese). Tokyo is requesting talks on the issue, the commies in China are in no rush to negotiate. Why would they? While Japan is asking for talks, the commies are continuing to extract natural gas from their rig. China's ever growing navy continues their belligerent behavior in the region. The commies in Beijing know their navy is twice as large as Japan's navy and that Japan is restricted to respond because of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. Perhaps Japan should place two gas rigs next to the commie rig and extract more gas than the commies. NHK news / video report: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/20120231_h22.html Commies causing trouble over the Senakau Islands. Recently Japan announced it would name so islets (rock formations) off or near the Senakau Islands. After the discovery of oil and gas in the waters around these islands China all of a saddened laid claim to them. The commies in Beijing registered a strong and continued protest with Tokyo over the naming of these islets. - The Senkaku Islands are today uninhabited in the East China Sea part of the Ryukyu Islands. Located between Taiwan, China, and Japan (Okinawa). These groups of islands are disputed as to their sovereignty between the three nations. Japan annexed the islands in 1879. In 1895 at the end of the Sino-Japanese War (war between China and Japan), the signed peace treaty (Treaty of Shimonoseki) it is argued recognized Japanese sovereignty over the islands. After World War Two the islands part of the Okinawa Prefecture came under USA control. In 1972 the control of the islands were turned back over to Japan with the Treaty of San Francisco (article 3). 1969 the United Nations (UN) released a report indicating the possibility of oil and gas reserves around the islands. Thus created an accelerated interest in the islands by Taiwan and China The conflicts of the 21st century will not be anchored in political issues as much as they will be rooted in an attempt to satisfy a nation's thirst for natural resources. Time-line involving ownership of the Senkaku Islands: Chinese name Diaoyu dates to the Ming Dynasty -- 14th -- 17th century In the 1800's the British named them the Pinnacle Islands. 1900 named Senkaku Retto by Japan which means Pinnacle Islands 1879 annexed as part of the Okinawa Prefecture (Japan) 1885 Japanese governor appointed 1895 Sino-Japanese War -- the treaty ending that war it is argued gave control of those islands to Japan The "Treaty of Shimonoseki" (articles 2 and 3) After WW2 the Islands with Okinawa came under USA control 1969 -- The UN indicated the possibility of large oil and gas reserves around the islands 1971 -- Taiwan asserted claim, 6 months later China made same assertion 1972 -- USA hands Okinawa and the Islands back to Japan Resulting in the Treaty of San Francisco -- article 3 included the islands Related news article concerning China's navy: http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20120111p2g00m0dm019000c.html East China Sea Kashi gas field Tianwaitan Japan China median line exclusive economic zone Senkaku Islands "Senkaku shoto" Diaoyu Diaoyutai NHK 日本放送協会 Nihon koku 日本国 尖閣諸島 "Senkaku retto" Chinese navy "Chinas navy" commie commies "commie led China" Propagandabuster propaganda buster Texas Daddy Tony

Japan vs. China: Tokyo takes its gloves off over East China Sea oil platforms - TomoNews
TOKYO — Japan on Tuesday called on China to halt the construction of oil and gas exploration platforms in a disputed area of the East China Sea. The claims were made in as part of a Defence White Paper approved by the Japanese Cabinet on Tuesday. The disputed areas lies southeast of Shanghai and Japanese officials said that there are 16 Chinese platforms close to Japan's side of the sea, with 12 of those platforms being built since June 2013. Japan has long expressed concern that platforms close to the maritime border could be used to extract resources from the Japanese side of the line. Tokyo is also worried that the platforms could be used as radar stations to monitor air and sea activity in the region, which is close to the disputed Senkaku, or Diaoyu Islands claimed by both countries. China immediately hit back, saying that it would make a "necessary reaction" after Beijing had reviewed the full text of the White Paper. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Japan-China tension over East China Sea islands reignites
China has sent a flotilla to the disputed waters of the East China Sea islands. The move comes in response to a group of 80 Japanese nationalists who entered the waters and claim to be surveying fishing waters. The Chinese presence is said to be the largest since Tokyo nationalised part of the island chain in September 2012: This is the latest provocation in the territorial tensions over the islands claimed as Senkaku by Japan and Dianoyu by China. As tensions escalate, Japanese MPs visited the Yasukuni shrine to pay their respects to war dead. The move has been criticised as the shrine also honours 14 leaders convicted of war crimes. The hommage has angered Japan's neighbours who deem it a glorification of their war atrocities. In response, South Korea's Foreign Minister has cancelled a trip to Japan.

China-Japan Held Meeting Over The East China Sea Island Dispute
China-Japan Held Meeting Over The East China Sea Island Dispute China and Japan have agreed to try to reduce tensions over a disputed chain of islands in the East China Sea. Beijing officials said a crisis management mechanism had been set up to prevent the situation from worsening. The strategically important islands, known as Diaoyu by China and Senkaku by Japan, are controlled by Japan. Meanwhile Japanese PM Shinzo Abe said the ground was being laid for a bilateral meeting between him and Chinese President Xi Jinping next week. "Both Japan and China are coming to the view that it would benefit not just the two countries but regional stability if a summit is held," he said, quoted by Reuters news agency.

Tokyo Looks to Buy Disputed East China Sea Islands
Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara said on Monday (April 16) that the Japanese capital is looking to buy a handful of disputed islands in the East China Sea claimed by both Japan and China. The Japanese said several of the islands are owned privately by Japanese citizens and currently leased to the government. The islands, known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, is part of a wider pattern of maritime territorial disputes between China with neighbors both citing historical and other claims over fishing areas and potential rich hydrocarbon deposits. Ishihara called China's claims "unbelievable", and that the Tokyo government will buy the islands. Japan says the median line between the two countries' coasts should mark the boundary of their exclusive economic zones. Japan includes the islands claimed by both countries as its own territory when measuring from its coasts. At stake are natural gas fields in a 970-km (620-mile) trough -- called Xihu by China and Okinawa by Japan -- in the East China Sea.

Japanese Activists Claim East China Sea Island Group - Inciting anger in China
There is another twist in the dispute over the ownership of the Diaoyu—or as they are known in Japan, Senkaku—Islands group in the East China Sea. Ten or so Japanese nationalists swam ashore one of the islands and planted a flag saying "Japanese Territory." The video of the action was released by nationalist-leaning Japanese internet video network, Sakura on Monday. The Japanese government was less than pleased according to a top government spokesman. [Osamu Fujimura, Government Spokesman]: "There is no doubt that the Senkaku Islands are Japan's territory based on historic truth and the international laws, and Japan is currently governing the islands; thus no territorial dispute exists from the start. The landing by activists is regretful as the government is maintaining the principle of not allowing any landings by people other than government officials." Their action incited a vigorous reaction in China, where mass protests have taken place. Tensions in the East China Sea have risen before. In 2010, Japan arrested a Chinese captain whose fishing trawler collided with a Japanese patrol boat near the uninhabited isles.

Is The South China Sea On The Brink Of War?
Reef Madness: The insignificant island chain pushing the south china sea to the brink of war Subscribe to Journeyman: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=JourneymanPictures For more on this escalating situation visit: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGSlkijht5gc6AwNdNCKra10gSLaxae6 For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=67224 The Spratly Islands are an unremarkable scattering of reefs and sandbars in the South China Sea. But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

Japan Protests Chinese Regime's East China Sea Gas Drilling
For more news and videos visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Japanese government protested to the Chinese regime for possibly drilling for gas in the disputed area of the East China Sea. Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said Wednesday the Chinese activity violates their agreement to mutually explore for natural gas in the area. Fujimura told reporters that a flare was spotted Tuesday at a Chinese undersea gas deposit construction. The Associated Press cited Fujimura saying, "We have detected a flare, a sign that it is highly likely that there is a gas development going on... Any unilateral exploration is unacceptable." The Chinese Foreign Ministry responded later on Wednesday—justifying its actions and reiterating its claim over the disputed waters. The deposit structure is near to the disputed Diaoyu islands that China, Japan, and also Taiwan have staked territorial claims. In 2008, China and Japan stopped unilateral explorations and agreed to talk about a joint exploration venture. The latest protest triggered another tit-for-tat exchange between the two countries over the on-going maritime dispute.

Japan Unfazed by U.S. B52 Flights Over East China Sea
Japan says U.S. B52 bomber flights over China's newly declared "air defence identification zone" were nothing out of the ordinary, demands China withdraw its claims over the zone immediately. Full Story: Japan on Wednesday defended the United States' decision to send two unarmed U.S. B-52 bombers on a training mission over disputed islands in the East China Sea. Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera says it was U.S. planes flying where they had always flown before and was nothing unusual. The White House urged Beijing to resolve its dispute with Japan over the islands diplomatically, without resorting to "threats or inflammatory language". Onodera says the publication of China's Air Defence Identification Zone was completely unilateral and the international community including Japan and US want to see it retracted. China published coordinates for an East China Sea Identification Zone over the weekend and warned it would take "defensive emergency measures" against aircraft that failed to identify themselves. Tokyo says Japan's Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida had received reassurances from the United States Secretary of State John Kerry that Washington was supportive of Japan's stance on this issue. The zone, about two thirds the size of Britain, covers the skies over islands at the heart of a territorial dispute that China has with Japan. The B-52 bombers carried out the flight, part of a long-planned exercise, on Monday, according to a U.S. military official. The dispute has flared before a trip to the region by Vice-President Joe Biden, who is scheduled to travel to Japan early next week and also has stops in China and South Korea. The Pentagon says the B-52 training exercise "involved two aircraft flying from Guam and returning to Guam", referring to the U.S. South Pacific island with large military U.S. bases. Annual U.S.-Japan naval exercises are also taking place in waters off the Japanese islands of Okinawa and Kyushu, to the east of China's new zone. The drills, which involve the USS George Washington aircraft carrier, were planned before China's announcement of the zone. China claims almost the entire South China Sea, conflicting with claims from Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Vietnam.

Japan Stakes More Of A Claim In East China Sea
Japan is fortifying its far-flung island chain in the East China Sea. Japanese military and government sources said the move happens under an evolving strategy that aims to turn the tables on China's navy and keep it from ever dominating the Western Pacific Ocean. The United States, believing its Asian allies - and Japan in particular - must help contain growing Chinese military power, has pushed Japan to abandon its decades-old bare-bones home island defense in favor of exerting its military power in Asia. Tokyo is responding by stringing a line of anti-ship, anti-aircraft missile batteries along 200 islands in the East China Sea stretching 1,400 km from the country's mainland toward Taiwan. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/QEuCi6VIDTI/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

China's Maritime Disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea
-- This video is part of the Council on Foreign Relations "China's Maritime Disputes" InfoGuide Presentation: http://cfr.org/chinasea -- Video: Preventative Measures: http://on.cfr.org/17xUJXJ Video: Crisis Management: http://on.cfr.org/HteSC8 The East and South China Seas are the scene of escalating territorial disputes between China and its neighbors, including Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The tensions, shaped by China's growing assertiveness, have fueled concerns over armed conflict and raised questions about Washington's security commitments in its strategic rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region. "Maritime disputes in the East and South China Seas are a pressing issue for the United States, China, and much of the rest of the world," says Elizabeth Economy, CFR's Director for Asia Studies. The region is rich in natural resources, home to many of the world's most dynamic economies, and an important global trade route for energy supplies and other goods. It is also a region in which power politics are at play and defense budgets are rising rapidly. As China's economic ascent facilitates growing military capabilities and assertiveness in both the East and South China Seas, other regional players are also experiencing their own rise in nationalism and military capability, and have exhibited greater willingness to stake territorial claims. Meanwhile, the U.S. "pivot" to Asia, involving renewed diplomatic activity and military redeployment, could signal Washington's heightened role in the disputes. If not managed wisely, these disputes could turn part of Asia's maritime regions from thriving trade channels into arenas of conflict. "If there is a use of force between Japan and China, this could be a full-on, all -out conflict between these two Asian giants, and as a treaty ally of Japan, will automatically trigger or automatically involve the United States," cautions Sheila A. Smith, CFR's Senior Fellow for Japan Studies. These dynamics pose an "exquisite" dilemma for U.S. foreign policy, says CFR President Richard N. Haass. "The danger is that twenty-first-century Asia could begin to go the way of twentieth-century Europe."

SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Hirokazu Iwai, Member of Ganbare Nippon: "I feel that fishing is proof of our administrative control." 8. Close of Japanese flag, pull out to wide of fishing boat STORYLINE Four fishing vessels carrying nearly 30 nationalist Japanese activists as well as local fishermen arrived at the waters near the disputed islands called Diaoyu by China and Senkaku by Japan, early on Sunday. Members of the conservative nationalist group, Ganbare Nippon, spent the morning fishing and surveying areas around the islets. The uninhabited outcroppings in the East China Sea are controlled by Japan but also claimed by China and Taiwan. The four fishing boats were heavily guarded by nearly a dozen Japanese Coast Guard vessels and rubber boats. At the time of departure on Saturday night, the Japan Coast Guard reported three Chinese surveillance ships sailing in the adjacent waters near Japan-claimed territories. It is Ganbare Nippon's fourth visit to the disputed areas this year, and the 14th time in the last three years. Participants pay 140,000 yen (1,368 US dollars) per person for each trip, said Hirokazu Iwai, a member of Ganbare Nippon who participated in the trip for the third time. "I feel that fishing is proof of our administrative control," said Iwai on Sunday. Chinese government ships have repeatedly entered what Japan considers territorial waters around the rocky outcroppings since last September, when the Japanese government bought the islands from their private Japanese owners. In recent weeks, these entries have become routine, with as many as eight boats entering Japanese-claimed waters in a single day in April. Meanwhile, the Japanese Defence Ministry earlier this month announced that a submersible vessel of unspecified country of origin have come into adjacent waters near southern Okinawa islands three times in May, raising territorial tension once again.

US slams China's air defense zone in East China Sea
The Pentagon slams China's decision to impose new rules on the airspace in the East China Sea. Beijing has included islands at the heart of a dispute with US ally, Japan in the new zone. US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has accused China of making efforts to alter the status quo in the region. He insists Beijing's decision will not change the way the U-S military conducts operations in the region. On Saturday, China issued a map of an East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone which includes a chain of disputed islands also claimed by Japan. The move has triggered a protest from Tokyo. China's decision comes after the U-S announced last year that it would expand its military presence in the Pacific region.

JAPAN risk blockade CHINA SEA, EAST SEA conflict | Hot News
Quartz assessment, the dispute over the East China Sea also contributed to rising tensions between Japan and giant neighbor China. East China Sea directly adjacent to the coast of Japan, unlike China Sea. In particular, Japan's Ryukyu island chain that stretches southwest 1.400km from mainland Japan, from Kyushu to Taiwan island, between the coast of China and the Pacific. This island chain, including Okinawa, where the US military stationed under the US-Japan security treaty. China has long been blatantly argues that the Senkaku islands controlled by Japan Ryukyu island chain located close to belong to China. The fishing grounds and natural gas basins have not been exploited located around small islands and deserted (China calls the Diaoyu Islands). The issue has stirred anger from both countries in recent years, each party to strengthen its military presence in the region. In late 2013, China has unilaterally set the air defense identification (ADIZ) over the Senkaku Islands area in the East China Sea. The country's defense ministry warned that all aircraft entering the area should notify the Chinese authorities, and following self-declaration and order controlled by Beijing. The execution showed the difficulties and failed but China can work harder in the future if new infrastructure put into operation.
