Chinese vessels near Japan’s Senkaku Islands for 7th day
Beijing: Chinese surveillance vessels entered the contiguous zone around the Japan-controlled Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea for the seventh consecutive day on Sunday, the coast guard reported.
The coast guard said that four Chinese vessels entered the zone, which lies just outside Japan’s territorial waters around the disputed Senkaku Islands.
According to the Japan Times, in addition to the surveillance vessels, a Chinese fisheries patrol boat was also seen entering Japan’s contiguous zone near the islands of Uotsuri in the Senkaku chain.
The uninhabited islands are claimed by China and Taiwan, and the dispute over their sovereignty has escalated dramatically since Japan purchased and nationalized three of the them last month, the report added.
