several ships in international waters near Okinawa, the normal running of Chinese warships, into April 13 of Japan’s major media headlines.

Japanese media Lively “maritime threat”
13, the Japanese TV Asahi suddenly broke a compelling news reports that China’s People’s Liberation Army 10 ships while in international waters near Okinawa, the Japanese Self-Defense Force was very nervous. Japan’s defense minister Kitazawa handsome 13, said: “The Chinese ships in the high seas area is indeed true, but it is so far there have been no events, we will go through a detailed analysis, the survey clearly is a harbor in China After the kind of intention to consider taking appropriate measures. “” Yomiuri Shimbun “quoted Defense Ministry officials as saying that the Japanese side notified the Chinese side not previously received.
According to the “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported that, according to the Self-Defense Forces chief of staff supervision department of the integration of intelligence, the Chinese fleet in the East China Sea this month, 7 days after training, at 8:00 pm and 10 appear in the southwest of Okinawa Island, about 140 km of seas, including the two latest diesel-powered Kilo-class submarines, two guided missile destroyers, a total of 10 ships. 13, these ships are still in the Pacific reef on the direction of the red bird which sailed south.
rare Asahi TV reports published in the Coast Guard shot video, black body submarine screen is clearly visible in the sea. In the television cameras, Kitazawa Grim-faced minister, showing lack of understanding of the Chinese action and confusion.
Japan’s “Sankei Shimbun” claims in recent years, the Chinese navy “that large-scale” military action is rare. Reported, 8, took off from the helicopter on the Chinese ships had close to the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force escort, “Ling wave”, the shortest distance of only 90 meters. “Daily News” reported that two recent large-scale Chinese submarine surfaced and was the first time witnessed the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, sailing on such a scale that the Chinese navy’s activities tend active. Jiji Press writes that in March this year, the Ministry of Defense also confirmed that six Chinese ships sailing in waters near Okinawa, but found the submarine in the sea-the first time.
Japan’s Ministry of Defense Institute for Defense Studies scholars to the history of rice fields on the site wrote that the Chinese warships in the red by the sea-birds, etc., show no recognition of Japan to Okinotori anchored designated economic zones position. 13, a Japanese political analyst, “Global Times” reporter said the emergence of the Chinese submarine is equivalent to the Japan-China summit talks, “demonstrations and test”, showing that China “to break through the first island chain, the boundaries of the Pacific to Hawaii for the segmentation. ”
high seas in line with “international law”
13 at Yahoo a lot of controversy on this matter, the Japanese Internet users complained that: “China did not take Hatoyama seriously children “, while others excitedly wrote:” Japan has nothing? go on like this work? “Some people even wrote:” to prepare a war with China! and do not expect the U.S. will protect us. ” It was also said to stay Posts: ships sailing the high seas beyond reproach, so see those in Japan itself is very strange. Others scoffed, not a right mind would think that two submarines of the Canadian warships will be able to declare war on the powerful U.S. military base.
13 pm Chinese Foreign Ministry’s regular press conference, a Western reporter asked about the Japanese ships in the coastal waters of China appear to say, “How do you comment?”
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said: “I also see the report just does not understand the specific situation, but I noticed that the waters mentioned in the report is on the high seas.”
Pacific Studies, Shanghai Jiaotong University Center Director Wang Shaopu 13, “Global Times” said that now the situation has not been confirmed by the Chinese military, can not determine whether it is true. If the Chinese warships are sailing the high seas, it does not violate “international law” requirement. He said that in recent years, China’s ever-increasing volume of international shipping, the sea is also increasing need to protect the interests. Therefore, China’s naval strategy has made a normal adjustment, from the past into a coastal defense coastal defense, really expanded the scope of activities. Over the years, Japan has been very concerned about the Chinese navy’s movement, the development of our military forces holding the concerns and alert.
less common, said the king, under the current circumstances, Japan should strengthen strategic mutual trust, but also should establish the necessary communication mechanisms to avoid each other’s concerns.
Japan has never been very sensitive to ship to China
fact, every time Chinese warships close to Japanese territorial waters and even scientific research ship, will cause a strong reaction in Japan. Japan Defense Agency for several years published the “Defense White Paper” has this sentence: “Chinese naval vessels frequently come and go in Japanese coastal waters, pose a threat to Japan.” In November 2003, the Chinese “Ming” class attack submarine in the vicinity of Japan waters appear, and surfaced, the Japanese media that this is China to Japan “demonstration”, “Japan’s intervention to counter a possible future war in the Taiwan Strait.”
2004, China’s “Han” class attack submarine strayed into Japanese territorial waters near Taiwan waters. Japanese government issued a Maritime Self-Defense Force since the creation of the second marine guard action command. Japanese Foreign Minister summoned the Chinese envoy in Japan, that “a strong protest and demand an apology.” A few days later, Chinese Foreign Ministry informed the Japanese side of the submarine into the waters of Okinawa, the incident, saying the incident has been resolved.
but some Japanese ships strayed into the territorial waters of China’s criticism has also been denied by the Chinese side. September 2008, Japan Kochi found unidentified submarine invasion of their territorial waters, calling it “a Chinese submarine.” Chinese Foreign Ministry denied that their submarines, and submarine in Japan and China this link regretted.
Okinawa is a sensitive area, which is located in the southwestern tip of Japan, who is China’s possessions, until the late 19th century by the Japanese forced annexation. It is an important part of the United States the first island chain, both close to the major U.S. military base, but also from the Chinese territory recently, Okinawa Yonaguni Island, 110 kilometers away from Taiwan, every sunny weather, across the two islands to the naked eye.
Okinawa in Japan’s position is very special to Okinawa is not easy, the need for specialized applications. Okinawa airport, although the domestic airport, but as much as customs and duty-free shops. Okinawa, Japan intends to fight the “Japan rushed to the forefront of Asia.” Japan has also engaged in Okinawa and Saudi Arabia in oil reserves libraries.
expert: perhaps with nuclear summit on
who lived in China, Japanese media Kato Ka-13, “Global Times” reporter, said: incident location near Okinawa, the Japanese threat to land a certain sense, the media can not report. But he believes the Japanese media’s reaction “can not see the element of speculation.” Kato said the high seas, after all, did not violate international law, nor is it “invasion.” Japan found that Chinese warships in international waters near Japan’s emergence, this is a dynamic rather than friction. He had learned from a diplomat in Japan through diplomatic channels to ask the Chinese, is a “very calm and easy-going way”, which shows the growing maturity of diplomatic. “If this matter took place in 2005, it is bad.”
researcher at the Institute of Contemporary International Relations China Liu Jun, Red 13, “Global Times” reporter that Chinese warships on the high seas travel, Japan is not entirely reasonable pick, but this time not only the Japanese media said, Even the defense minister to come out and say that this appears to be some ulterior motive. If our current nuclear summit, it is not difficult to understand Japan’s intentions. The United States and Russia are reducing their nuclear weapons, made a gesture, which broke the Japanese have long maintained by the balance-of-concept of their own security, the first Japan itself on the hope that China’s military posture to make a cut on, so prominent at this moment, “China’s military threat, “In addition, the United States hopes that China follow the United States and Russia to reduce nuclear weapons, do not rule out at this time with Japanese public opinion outside the United States to create the possibility.
Liu Hong said that the Japanese prominent coverage the news, but also from Taiwan himself to the nearest Yonaguni troops found more reasons. In addition, the recent easing of Sino-US relations from a stalemate, but also want to see Japan, Okinawa is the strategic interests of the U.S. military powerhouse, do not rule out the Japan-US relations also took the opportunity to create some bad blood.
Feng Zhaokui Chinese Academy of Social Sciences researcher at the Institute of Japan that the Japanese nation’s biggest feature is the strong sense of crisis. In fact, Japan should not be too sensitive on the matter. This also reflects the Sino-Japanese strategic mutual trust between the not yet formed. Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to Japan in 2008 when the two sides signed the fourth political document, provides that “in Japan are partners, do not pose a threat, support each other’s peaceful development.” This matter shows that, for this consensus is not well implemented. Feng Zhaokui also believe that the Japan-US alliance to contain China’s navy is still going out from the role. Japan and the U.S. in the three countries need to further enhance mutual trust through dialogue and communication. ▲
