Japan protests over Chinese boats sailing to Diaoyu

(07-11 18:57)
Japan has lodged a protest with China against the entry of Chinese patrol ships into waters near the disputed Diaoyu islands in the East China Sea. Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said three Chinese fishery patrol vessels entered waters near the uninhabited islands this morning. Xinhua news agency said the ships had entered the waters “to carry out a fishery protection mission” and stressed that the islands and surrounding waters have been Chinese territory since ancient times. Last week, Japan said it was considering a plan to buy the islands from private landowners.
