Japan accuses Chinese military of "36th invasion" into its territorial waters since the beginning of the year


The incident took place on November 19 at 4.00 Moscow time. Four PLA Navy patrol ships entered Japanese territorial waters off the Senkaku Islands. This is what the Japanese Coast Guard says. The Japanese authorities are unhappy with another violation by the Chinese military. According to some reports, ships armed with long-range artillery mounts approached the islands.

According to Japan, this incident is only in 2021 the 36th in a row. For what purpose the Chinese ships entered the territorial waters of Japan is unknown. At the same time, in China, these waters, like the islands themselves, are considered their own, calling Diaoyu.

Recall that the Senkaku Islands have been controlled by Japan since 1895. They came under Japanese control at the same time as Taiwan, but later Chinese jurisdiction was established over Taiwan, and then Taiwan became a partially recognized independent state.

The Senkaku Islands remained under Japanese rule, but, as already noted, both the PRC and the Republic of China (Taiwan) claim them. All these countries express claims to each other regarding the ownership of the disputed archipelago. Therefore, the next violation by Chinese ships of the boundaries of Japanese territorial waters may have the character of a demonstration of the strength and seriousness of China's intentions regarding the disputed islands.

Earlier, China stated that it was ready to use military force in the event of encroachment by foreign powers on Chinese territories and waters. So far, no such force has been used in the Senkaku (Diaoyu) area.

          No, almost nothing has changed ...
          The Japanese do not "warn" but accuse.
          So this is again a "Chinese warning". Only now they warn differently.

    The mess will begin when China lands a landing on the Diaoyu and begins to fortify there, waiting for dump barges that extract silt and sand from the bottom and expand land areas for military installations.
    Also, sooner or later, China will deploy anti-aircraft systems and air defense systems on the islands. Then the yapam will have to either start a war, or wipe themselves off with a heart-rending cry.
    Exactly because they shout about the northern territories, and we are strengthening there, period!

    Senkaku "are uninhabited. Both Japan and China sometimes send their official delegations to them. People who disembark usually raise their national flag over one of the islands, and then leave back. Consists of eight islands: Uotsurishima (Diaoyu-dao), Taishoto (Chiwei -yu), Kubashima (Huangwei-yu), Kitakojima (Bei Xiao-dao), Minamikojima (Nan Xiao-dao), Oki-no-Kitaiwa (Da Bei Xiao-dao), Oki-no-Minamiiva (Da Nan Xiao- Tao), Tobise (Fei Jiao-yan) Largest island: Uotsurishima Total area: 7 km² Highest point: 383 m gas - 700 billion cubic meters., there are rich fish resources. In 200, Japan surrendered to the Allies and lost all the territories it had acquired since the end of the 1945th century. Senkaku, together with Okinawa, were under US jurisdiction. But in the early 1970s, the United States returned Okinawa to Japan , giving her and Senkaku. 20 years later, the PRC announced that it did not agree with this decision, and in 1992 it declared this territory "natively Chinese."

      Yes, there is not just "the United States returned." It looks like it was even more fun - the USA allegedly sold Senkaku to a private person in order not to be included in the "2WW scribes of the results". But Japan, as it were, bought them from him.

    After Xi's talks with Biden, it became clear that the US decided to soften its relationship with China in order to tackle Russia more closely. And it was not long in coming. They immediately began to convince the whole world that Russia, not today, tomorrow will attack Ukraine. Russia is evil for the whole World, having forced Belarus to it. And every day this will intensify - Ukraine will be the fuse-cord. The Americans will not participate openly, but will drive to the slaughter
    Young NATO members. Poland is already "eager to fight" itself.

      No, it was not clear to everyone.
      On the contrary, the PRC is the main enemy of the United States. Russia, on the other hand, is being processed within the framework of "containment," and no one thought to give up this program. Unfortunately, this is not difficult for the ops. It is enough to "set fire" to the perimeter. Armenia, Ukraine, Transnistria, Belarus, Tajikistan, etc.

        I'll try in more detail. "Bickford cord" between the US and Russia according to the plan of the Anglo-Saxons - Ukraine. And China has Taiwan. And suddenly, Biden told Xi that the United States would no longer interfere with China's relations with Taiwan. That is, the most acute issue of hostility between the United States and China has been removed from the agenda of relations.
        Although before that, a war between China and Taiwan was already being prepared, incited by the Anglo-Saxons. and now - China will return Taiwan peacefully. hi

          Sorry, I can't agree with that.
          Don't listen to what they say, watch what they do. Biden's words are the usual diplopathic mishpuha. He will not say something like: We are for Taiwan! But if you carefully read the press releases of the State Department and the responses of the Chinese Foreign Ministry before the meeting, it is more interesting there. There, the Americans demand submission from the PRC, and the Chinese answer - fuck you! If it is simple and affordable. Diplomacy is like that.
          Well, I am already silent about "AUKUS", and about the tension around the PRC, created by the satellites.

      konstantin68 Sorry, I can't agree with that.

      The United States has two adversaries today that do not allow them to become "exceptional" - Russia and China. They understand perfectly well that they will not be able to withstand two, they must go to "rapprochement" with one of them. And since they have
      big economic ties with China, and knowing their not particularly militant mentality, they decided to "make friends" with China, surrendering Taiwan to them.

      Well, I am already silent about "AUKUS", and about the tension around the PRC, created by the satellites.

      And "AUKUS" was created by the Anglo-Saxons not only for China, but for the entire Asia-Pacific region, including Russia. Instead of the former SEATO.

        For example, before the referendum to shoot at the Chinese
        9 out of 10, and the Japanese have every million. Quantity
        votes will be equal and then hold a referendum.
