Sino-Japanese relations as a tooth decay, and always make sense of the two kind of pain. In recent years, many people of insight both countries want to unplug the Fengyun tooth decay, but with little success. Yesterday, with Premier Wen Jiabao’s visit to Japan, the two decided to formally start negotiations on the implementation of the consensus principle of the East China Sea issue, “extraction” project has finally taken a substantial step.
In recent years, the East China Sea dispute has become the most sensitive to lead Sino-Japanese friction zone. Both societies involved in this extremely sensitive issue of news, very emotional confrontation. In Japan, the Chinese media often portrayed as legitimate maritime rights and interests “threat” or even speculation as “offensive” Japan’s phantom. A sign of trouble, like the community as raged, forcing policy-makers have some action on the East China Sea issue. In China, people are very concerned about the rights of the East China Sea. Every time Japan has introduced new laws relating to marine, people always worry that this will not be another for the “eating” the East China Sea to prepare.
As the famous American strategic forecasting firm, as has been inferred, unless both sides make concessions, otherwise no hope to solve the East China Sea dispute. This forecast reflects a true solution to this problem lies the difficulty.
from the past few years to see, from the Diaoyu Islands dispute, continental shelf to the Chunxiao oil field development, Japan has continued to set the agenda on the East China Sea issue, and look forward to follow their own will in the short term solution to the East China Sea dispute . By some Japanese scholars of logic, Japanese waters in East Asia have a better international image, stronger domestic demand as well as the support of the US-Japan alliance, so in the East China Sea dispute has possession of the ultimate profitability of the chips.
In contrast, China is more hope “appeasement.” China’s development focus on domestic economic development, China does not want to “blue water” in the process enemies, more willing to do a good job around the relationship, rather than the old unresolved issues in time and adding new problems. However, if Japan is China’s people see this as a disadvantage, then they are mistaken.
in the East China Sea dispute, the Chinese people to see more long-term. The Chinese say, time is on China’s side, is Asia, East Asia and China and Japan’s long-term development will show that China adheres to the principle of cooperation, which can stand the test of time.
but some people do not think so in Japan, Japanese media has long been advocating, is currently the best time to solve the East China Sea dispute. Once China’s national strength is far from over and will be left behind in Japan, China’s ocean policy will be adjusted to any expectations of Japan would be a fantasy. This is a miscarriage of justice.
In fact, for decades, the East China Sea policy has not changed over the future even more to enhance China’s strength, and will remain so. Now the Japanese people to understand their own speculation China’s future policy direction, trying to work harder children asking price in the current negotiations, this attitude is not desirable.
Japan must see that the entanglement between the two countries in the East China Sea has put a lot of resources and energy, far greater than the potential benefits for the future. If it continues, in addition to many unpleasant friction occurred, it is impossible to have more positive results. In this regard, those who advocate the East China Sea disputes, the Japanese media and politicians, if you really want long-term consideration, they should report in good faith the reality of people, and not passed to the National unrealistic fantasy.
globalization of maritime disputes, and only through cooperation is the ultimate solution. To settle this dispute is a problem, from the current situation, a dispute between the two countries but also in this place a long time. However, cooperation is the most important, the current Prime Minister of Japan rebuilding hotline between the two countries, the most important is to create conditions for cooperation. Only cooperation will benefit both, “extraction” final possible. But in the short term, do not let it get angry is the most realistic.
