TOKYO: Two Chinese ships illegally entered the Japanese territorial waters in the vicinity of the disputed Senkaku Islands on Saturday, according to Japan’s safety company.
Citing NHK broadcaster, Sputnik documented that the incident happened at 16:00 pm (07:00 GMT), with the Japanese Coastline Guard Service urging violators to go away the country’s territorial waters. This is despite Japanese defence minister Nobuo Kishi final 7 days conveying to his Beijing counterpart Wei Fenghe about Tokyo’s strong issues about Beijing’s normal tries to “unilaterally transform the position quo by coercion”.
In Oct, two Chinese vessels stayed in the disputed waters for about 50 hours, marking the longest intrusion into the waters in 8 several years.

China has been expanding its maritime pursuits in both equally the South China Sea and the East China Sea in excess of the previous couple of months, partly in reaction to Beijing’s concerns in excess of the rising US armed forces existence in the area.
