BEIJING: China has stepped up patrols in the waters of the disputed islands under the control of Japan in the East China Sea, a move that could anger Tokyo.
Reports in the state-run media in recent weeks highlighted continued patrols by Chinese Coast Guard vessels which often jostle with their Japanese counterparts as the two countries doggedly try to enforce the claims of their countries over the islands which are under administrative control Tokyo.
State-run Xinhua reported today that three Chinese ships patrolled the "territorial waters".
China conducts such patrols on a regular basis, it said.
The islands are called Sankakus by Japan and Diaoyu by China.
Rascal China would not mend the ways He is becoming a serious threat to world order and peace They simply want to grab everything
Ok how about this, if China creates the next world order, India shouldn''t threaten it ok? Or your words will just be hypocrisy.
CHINA MOST BE LEARN WHAT RESPECT AND LAW MEANS
yeah,good move. Just after the US and Japan threatened to militarily counter China in this area. China stepped out to slam them right on the face! like what you gonna do ? i am right here now!
wonder how could China and Japan go together
"China began its patrols in the disputed waters after Japan asserted its control by nationalising them in 2013 stepping up its claims". Japan moved first and China followed. The US decided to grant administration right but not sovereignty right to Japan. Divide and conquer - Sounds familiar ?
All chinese enemies should attack China at once and make them unbreathable
China is behaving like a big bully! It must learn to coexist with it''s neighbours and respect international law! Using force is going to back fire on China!
CHINA seems hell bent on stirring SCS trouble to test TRUMP&USA and their INDO-Pacific Partners resolve
