TOKYO, September 26. /TASS/. The Japanese government considers China’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East China Sea as unacceptable as it also includes the disputed Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Monday.
"Attempts to demonstrate that the air space over the Japanese Senkaku Islands belongs to China, are absolutely inadmissible," Suga said at a press conference. Talking about China’s air force exercise near the disputed islands, the official said that Tokyo will do everything possible "to observe the norms of international law in the region."
The territorial dispute between Japan and China around Senkaku intensified after Tokyo announced in 2012 that it bought the islands from private owners.
Mass anti-Japanese demonstrations were held in China after that. Since then, Chinese ships constantly remain in the proximity of the disputed islands and occasionally enter the coastal zone.
