Japan expresses a protest to China in connection with the next entry of Chinese ships into the zone near the Senkaku Islands

TOKYO, 8 August. / Corr. ITAR-TASS Igor Belyaev. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan today summoned the Chinese Ambassador to express "strong protest" in connection with the activity of the Chinese side near the Senkaku Islands / Diaoyu /. This is stated in the message of the Japanese Foreign Ministry.

The protest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan is associated with the recent visits by the PRC marine police ships to the zone near the disputed islands, which Japan considers its territorial waters. So, on Wednesday, four Chinese ships entered the waters of the archipelago and are still there. “We demand the immediate withdrawal of all ships from this zone,” the head of the Japanese foreign affairs agency, Fumio Kisida, said at a press conference. “We also express our deepest indignation at the incident.”

Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan Yosychide Suga, in turn, noted that such "invasions of the territorial waters of Japan are completely unacceptable and deserve the deepest regret."

The territorial dispute around Senkaku / Diaoyu / between Japan and China escalated after Tokyo announced the purchase of islands from private owners in early September last year. After that, mass anti-Japanese demonstrations took place in the People's Republic of China, accompanied by pogroms. In the past few months, the sentry ships of China are almost constantly in the vicinity of Senkaku / Diaoyu / and occasionally make brief demonstrative visits to the coastal zone. Since the end of July, ships belonging to the new division of the PRC Marine Police, which was established on 23 in July this year, have already entered this area.

    Took, and kicked out, what's the problem? wink Since your islands, then you don’t write pieces of paper, otherwise they cannot protect Senkaku, and give them the Kuril Islands as well.

      Maybe they would have kicked out, but the forces are not the same.

        Yes, this fuss generally resembles a scene from the “Golden Calf” by Ilf and Petrov, when Shura Balaganov and Panikovsky, slapped each other with the words “And who are you” until Panikovsky realized that Balaganov would beat him now .. .So here, China is Shura Balaganov, and Japan is Panikovsky ...

          Maybe they’ll fight? And China hangs on the Japs and brings them to life, otherwise they are already tired of their territorial claims.

        Yes, and the neighbor is scary :) I think the Japanese are afraid of the Chinese more than America and everyone else.

    This is a game like that. At one time, the Japanese played around the Kuril Islands. True, they did not risk sending warships, but sent fishermen. Our MF units drove them, and when they got tired of running, they sent bullets. They fly faster, and get tired less, and explain more intelligibly ...

    I wonder what organ of the human body the Chinese put to the protests of Japan? Disputed territories ... It was necessary to move the horn back in the 1945 year. Now the Chinese junks, accompanied by coast guard boats, are floating in Chinese territorial waters

    At present, the Chinese Air Force is armed with: 120 strategic N-6 bombers — upgraded Tu-16 clones (another 10 are used as refueling tanks); 99 Su-30; 76 Su-27; 140 J-11 (Chinese clone Su-27); 200 J-10 (Chinese clone of the Israeli Lavi fighter; 72 front-line bombers JH-7 (analogous to our Su-24), 180 J-8 (fighter based on the Su-15 and MiG-23), 389 J-7 (heavily upgraded copy of the MiG-21, currently being withdrawn from service) and 240 Q-5 attack aircraft (modernization of the MiG-19 for attacking ground targets. That is, about 1516 combat aircraft. There are also 12 AWACS aircraft: 5 KJ-2000 based on the IL-76 and 7 KJ-200 based on the Chinese copy of the An-12-Y-8. There are about 230 more combat aircraft (14 N-6, 23 Su-30, 20 J-10, 24 J-11, 35 JН -7, 48 J-8, 35 J-7, 30 Q-5) and 7 AWACS KJ-200 has the Chinese naval aviation.The most likely opponent of the so-called "rebellious province" Taiwan has 144 American F -16 (early modification of Block 20), 55 French Mirage-2000, 126 Chin-Kuo fighters of their own production and 68 American F-5 Tiger fighters, that is, about 393 combat aircraft and 6 AWACS aircraft. (excluding strategic the bombers that Taiwan does not have, and taking into account the naval aviation of China) is 4, 1: 1 combat aircraft in favor of China (1612 in China, 393 in Taiwan), DRLO-3, 2: 1 in favor China (19 from China, 6 from Taiwan) Another probable enemy Japan has in service are 198 F-15 fighter-interceptors assembled under license, 75 F-2 fighters (Japanese version of the American F-16, the latest modification of Block 52) and 80 American F-4 Phantom, which are replaced by F-15, and it is planned to finally replace the F-35 Lightning. There are also 17 AWACS aircraft: 4 Boeing E-767, 13 E-2C Hokai. The ratio of forces is 4,6: 1, in favor of China (1612 in China, 353 in Japan), with the approximate equality of AWACS aircraft (19 from China, 17 from Japan). Vietnam, with which China still has not resolved territorial disputes over the Spratly archipelago, has about 237 combat aircraft in service: 24 Su-30s, 13 Su-27s, and about 60 Su-22 fighters, 140 MiG-21s ; Vietnam has no AWACS aircraft. The power ratio is 6,8: 1, in favor of China. That is, China has achieved four-fold superiority, and even seven-fold superiority over Vietnam, over all its probable opponents. And the Su-35, which China plans to purchase, is required to achieve absolute quality superiority. I do not consider India yet, because the country has nuclear weapons. Yours faithfully! hi

      and besides nuclear weapons, the high accident rate of the Indian Air Force does not allow a real assessment of the situation

      All this aviation power does not matter much. Neither to Japan, nor to the disputed islands, they will not be able to fly. Only one way, like a kamikaze. The Japanese, from Okinawa, fly much closer.
      Therefore, China is developing carrier-based aviation.

    The Chinese can swim around as they like. The status of the islands will not change. And they decide to land ... then we’ll see who and whom.

      China does not have many landing ships. There are essentially only three large ones.

    Interestingly, and the Japanese Navy boats go there? Simply, if you go, then there is a chance to look at a small mess between the Chinese and Japanese, which could well develop into a conflict comparable to Damansky (if the Chinese leadership has political will, of course).

    In 1945, Japan lost the war and Senkaku, along with Okinawa, were under US jurisdiction. But in 1971, the United States returned Okinawa to Japan, giving it to Senkaku. THEN, PRC, like Taiwan, have not expressed any protests against the inclusion of these islands in the number of regions under the control of the United States ACCORDING to Article III of the San Francisco Peace Treaty.
    In 1992, the PRC declared this territory “original Chinese” based on the provisions of the Cairo Declaration of 1943, which deprived Japan of all its conquered territories.
    And why is Taiwan silent ...
    PS If the case is referred to the international court of justice of the United Nations - the patrimony of the United States, the PRC will definitely fly by.

    Japan seems to have already announced that it will at least defend the disputed territories on its own. Where could she go without Uncle Sam against China and Russia.

        so these huge forces under the agreement are located 100km from the border. go 100 km deep and you will see that powerful grouping of the Chinese army, starting from tank divisions and ending with parts of the 31st artillery corps (these are the Chinese Strategic Missile Forces). but read this

    Arabist 8 August 2013 20: 14 New
    Did you see it yourself when crossing the Russian-Chinese border? The Chinese Strategic Rocket Forces is the 2nd artillery corps, not the 31st artillery corps. Have you read Khramachikhin?
