An unknown submarine was discovered off the coast of Japan

An unknown submarine off the coast of Japan was discovered by the country's Self-Defense Forces. This was reported by the Japanese Ministry of Defense.


As follows from the message, an unknown submarine, while underwater, appeared twice in the south of the zone adjacent to the territorial waters of Japan, but was not included in them. Minister of Defense Taro Kono called on the Self-Defense Forces to be vigilant and ordered the collection of information on this fact.

On June 18, the destroyer and patrol aircraft of the maritime self-defense forces spotted a submarine heading west in the adjacent zone off Amamioshima Island in Kagoshima Prefecture. On June 20, she was rediscovered outside the contiguous zone off Yokoate Kagoshima Prefecture

- said in a statement posted on Twitter by the Japanese military.

The Japanese Ministry of Defense does not declare ownership of the discovered submarine, but do not exclude that it could belong to the Chinese Navy.

It is reported that the last time an unknown submarine, probably belonging to the PLA Navy, was discovered in early 2018 in the area of ​​the southern Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu), which are the subject of a territorial dispute between Japan and China.

    And why not the DPRK, with which Japan has strained relations? They probably said about China to be in the American trend of fighting China or ...? Concerning vigilance - practice shows that it is certainly better to overdo it than to overdo it. Well, keep your eyes open and gather information.

          hi I also thought about this, the methods of indiscriminate accusations (allegedly discovered "unknown submarines", but immediately point the finger, whose they should be considered "the world community") are the same as those of the Swedes.
          By the way, I once read a book of memoirs of an American submariner about the intelligence operations of the Cold War. There was also about their "secret missions" off the "neutral" Swedish shores (possibly with provocative, anti-Soviet-anti "neutral" goals).
          So, it is quite possible that the Swedes are completely pointing in the wrong direction ?!
          And the current interest of Japanese revenge-seekers (Washington's vassals striving to fully restore their former might in the Asia-Pacific region) in the "discovery" of Chinese (Korean) "unknown submarines" is more than understandable.

            I think so too, and the Japanese statement makes sense, like "Give us 4 islands, and there will be no more unknown submarines"

          Found it, stubborn people. It turned out to be their oceanographic buoy. In fairness, it should be noted that they also found the Russian submarine in the process of searching, it was "Som", which perished in 1916.

        And what is the "noise and electromagnetic" portrait of broken buoys and "Loch Ness monsters", which with enviable consistency find in their territorial waters the valiant Swedish Navy and identify them as Russian submarines? Do you think that the Japanese are cooler than the Swedes, or they have one master?

    Well, what is there to comment on? They showed that the self-defense forces of Japan vigilantly serve! They showed that Japan is in the ring of enemies! The Japanese need to strain, make money, buy new weapons, conquer their territories! And what is interesting! Such crap goes around the world! Of course there is no world conspiracy! But why is this happening all over the world? After all, there is a global trend, and this is not casual! If it inflates, then someone needs it!
