TOKYO, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Japan has declared “a strong protest” to Beijing in connection with the entry of ships of China’s maritime police into the zone near the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands in the East China Sea, which Tokyo considers its territorial waters, the Japanese Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.
Territorial sovereignty over the islands and the maritime boundaries around them are disputed between the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), and Japan.
According to the Japanese Coast Guard, four Chinese ships entered the waters of the archipelago around 09:30, local time. The border guards demanded over the radio that they “immediately leave the territorial waters” of the country, but did not take any action against the Chinese maritime police vessels.
