Chinese ships continue to patrol near Senkakus

Date Posted: 2011-11-04

Chinese fisheries patrol ships continue to maneuver in the contiguous zone 30 kilometers north-northeast of Kuba Island, one of the Japan-controlled Senkaku islets.

The Japan Coast Guard says one of their patrol ships from the 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters in Naha has been tracking the ships, which it first spotted a few days ago, and has inquired of their intentions. The Chinese vessels have told the Japanese they are on general patrol.

The Senkaku islands are claimed by Japan, but also by Taiwan and China. Japan Coast Guard officials say the Chinese vessels are careful as they move in and out of the contiguous zone, avoiding entering Japanese territorial waters. The Coast Guard says it continues to monitor the Chinese ships.

The latest incident between Japan and Chinese came August 24th after two Chinese fishery patrol boats intruded into Japanese territorial waters near the Senkaku Islands. That incident led Vice Foreign Minister Kenichiro to lodge a formal protest with China.
