Beijing, Tokyo Continue Talking

Beijing on Monday confirmed that diplomatic communication with Tokyo "remains" in the Diaoyu Islands dispute leading up to an ice-thawing trip to Beijing by key members of Japan's Cabinet.

Beijing urged Tokyo to handle the standoff calmly and with sincerity, while observers said it remains to be seen whether the Japanese ruling coalition's key members will bring constructive proposals to China during their visit.

China consistently advocates resolving territorial disputes through dialogue and consultation, while the country has both the "determination and capability" to protect its territorial sovereignty, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.

Hong made the remarks while criticizing Japanese Foreign Ministry's previous statements that accused China's growing presence on the Diaoyu Islands as "trying to change the status quo".

"Japan's so-called existence or control regarding the relevant sea area is illegal and invalid," Hong said.

China sent government aircraft from China Marine Surveillance for regular patrol over the Diaoyu Islands, yet "what Japan scrambled were fighter jets" trying to hold down Chinese airplanes, said Zhou Yongsheng, an expert on Japanese studies at China Foreign Affairs University.

Tensions flared over the islands in September after the Japanese government illegally "purchased" part of the Diaoyu Islands, and China Marine Surveillance has beefed up regular patrols of both vessels and aircraft around the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea.

To ease tensions, Japan should first cancel its erroneous "purchase" decision, and Tokyo should recognize the territorial row over the islands, said Dong Manyuan, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies.

Zhou warned that it is impossible for Beijing to get the situation back to the time when the latest standoff was not triggered.

A Chinese marine surveillance fleet continued patrolling China's territorial waters around the Diaoyu Islands on Monday and found Japanese ships that entered China's territorial waters, according to the State Oceanic Administration.


The vessels, Haijian 137, Haijian 23 and Haijian 46, followed and monitored the Japanese ships, and demanded the Japanese ships' immediate departure from Chinese waters.

"China urges Japan to calmly handle the Diaoyu Islands issue and show sincerity in working with China to properly resolve and control the situation," said Hong, the Foreign Ministry spokesman.

Meanwhile, Natsuo Yamaguchi, party leader of the pacifist New Komeito, the junior coalition partner of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, will start a four-day journey to China on Tuesday.

Yamaguchi has told reporters that he will carry a handwritten letter from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the hawkish president of the LDP. The letter is intended for Xi Jinping, China's top political leader and head of the military.

In a Monday interview with Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV, Yamaguchi stressed the importance of politicial dialogue between both sides, and he said he believed that Abe is ready to resume a leadership summit between the world's second- and third-largest economies.

The party leader also urged both sides not to send military aircraft into the airspace above the islands.

Feng Wei, an expert on Japanese studies at Fudan University in Shanghai, said Yamaguchi's trip is "clearly a signal" sent by Tokyo that the tension might be eased in the future.

"Yamaguchi's Beijing voyage is another presentation of Abe's ice-breaking plan, and the New Komeito party has endured a lasting bond with Beijing in the past few decades," Feng said.

The pacifist party played an indispensable role in the preparation for normalizing diplomatic ties more than 40 years ago, as key members of the party visited China with constructive proposals before the final normalization in 1972 was achieved.

"Yamaguchi has objected to Abe's high-profile plan to revise the country's pacifist Constitution, and the party leader has also told media that it is not sensible to impact Japan-China ties due to the Diaoyu Islands dispute," Feng said.

Zhou Yongsheng, the Japanese studies expert, said both Tokyo and Beijing are expected to take a good chance.

"If Tokyo makes only verbal communications with Beijing during Yamaguchi's trip yet offers no tangible concessions, I'm afraid the visit will not be constructive," Zhou warned.

China warning not to side with US

A CHINESE military officer has warned Australia not to side with the United States and Japan if war breaks out in the East China Sea.
Colonel Liu's warning raises the nightmare possibility of Australia having to choose between its dominant economic and security partners as a territorial contest between Japan and China over the Senkaku or Diaoyu Islands continues to escalate.
China, Japan and Japan's defence ally, the United States, have traded military and diplomatic warnings over the disputed islands, while China has placed the People's Liberation Army on combat alert.

Re: Japan to boost military headcount amid china island row!!
Japan's claim to the islands is bullshit. It was clearly the intention of post WW2 treaties that the defeated Japanese empire no longer had claim to the island. China, as party to the treaties, were entitled to reclaim the islands as their territory considering that their claim to the islands dates back to the 17th century

Japanese envoy in Beijing to talk about disputed islands
Beijing: China welcomed a Japanese envoy Tuesday for talks as both sides took steps to cool tensions over an island dispute that has raised fears of an armed confrontation.

Yamaguchi, whose schedule has not been announced, is not a member of the government so his meetings in Beijing represent a type of quiet diplomacy that could allow for a franker exchange of views than official talks

Japan Makes Overture to China in Islands Dispute

Separately, the Philippines announced Tuesday that it would formally challenge China’s claims in the South China Sea before a United Nations tribunal that oversees the Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The Philippines has been in bitter argument with China since last summer when China effectively took control of an island in the South China Sea known in the Philippines as Scarborough Shoal, and as Huangyan island in China.

January 23, 2013

A CHINESE military officer has raised the spectre of nuclear weapons and warned Australia not to side with the United States and Japan as a territorial dispute in the East China Sea continues to escalate.

Re: Japan to boost military headcount amid china island row!!
- Japan is set to boost the number of military personnel, Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said on Sunday, as the new government led by the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) tackles a territorial spat with China over East China Sea islets.

The number of personnel, now standing at about 225,000, will increase by 287 in the next fiscal year starting in April.


Onodera said the increase was the biggest in two decades
