Japan Coast Guard: Chinese Navy Ships Enter Disputed Waters

In China, Japan, News, Other Leaks on December 21, 2012 at 3:31 AM


The Japanese Coast Guard reported that three Chinese maritime surveillance vessels have sailed into the territorial waters of disputed islands in the South China Sea, the first such intrusion since Japan elected its new government, AFP reported.

The ships were spotted northwest of Kubajima Island, in the archipelago dubbed Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China, at around 10:20am local time (0120 GMT).

Chinese government ships have repeatedly entered the waters since September. Analysts believe that China is challenging Japan’s de facto control of the islands for the past 40 years.
