外文标题：Four Chinese ships in disputed waters: Japan
TOKYO: Four Chinese ships entered waters around islands at the centre of a bitter dispute with Japan on Saturday with no sign of a compromise seen between Asia's two largest powers.
The four Chinese coastguard vessels sailed into the 12-nautical-mile territorial waters around the Tokyo-controlled Senkaku islands - which Beijing calls the Diaoyus - Saturday morning, the Japanese coastguard said.
The moves came after the first anniversary Wednesday of Tokyo's nationalisation of part of the chain. On the eve of the anniversary, a flotilla of eight Chinese ships entered the territorial band of waters.
Often-testy ties have soured dramatically over the last 12 months, with frequent confrontations between official ships from both sides.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday vowed to beef up his country's defence capability amid the row with China.
Japan annexed what it says were unclaimed islands in 1895. It says China's assertion of ownership only came after the discovery of resources in the seabed at the close of the 1960s.
Beijing maintains that the islands have been its territory for hundreds of years and were illegally snatched by Tokyo at the start of an acquisitive romp across Asia that culminated in World War II.

why Japan is not taking any action against these ships? because these ships are within Chinese limits and Japan is simply trying to playing up tensions.

They are itching to fight with you and few shots towards them may create a bigger problem. Your country has enough material to build many tactical weapons and it is time to build them for your security. No doubt some other countries may come to help but your own power is most important. People of your country are intelligent and in no time they can build heir own missiles and fighter planes.

The Chinese are always delighted to do fishing in troubled waters. Nothing new.
