Chinese Ships Detected Near Disputed Islands


Chinese Ships Detected Near Disputed Islands

 Two Chinese coast guard vessels entered Japan’s territorial waters near the uninhabited Senkaku Islands Monday morning, NHK news reports.

The ships entered the long-disputed waters about 20km off the island of Minami Kojima at around 7am and approached a Japanese fishing boat, the Japanese public broadcaster reported, citing Coast Guard officials.

Monday’s incident, according to the outlet’s figures, marks the seventh time this year that Japan has spotted Chinese ships navigating off the islands - Beijing insists that its Coast Guard is simply patrolling territorial waters.
