3 Chinese ships in disputed waters—Japan

TOKYO—Three Chinese government ships sailed into waters around disputed islands controlled by Tokyo on Saturday, the Japanese coastguard said.

The maritime surveillance vessels entered the 12-nautical-mile zone off Uotsurijima, one of the Senkaku islands, which China calls the Diaoyus, in the East China Sea shortly after 9:30 a.m. (0030 GMT), the coastguard added.

Ships from the two countries have been involved in a stand-off as Beijing and Tokyo jostle over ownership of the strategically important and resource-rich islands.

A territorial row that dates back four decades reignited last September when Tokyo nationalized three islands in the chain, in what it said was a mere administrative change of ownership.

      The next president of the Philippines, Sen. Escudero is a leftist with ties to the NPA. He is pro-China.

      There is nothing we can do as he is very likely to win.

      • lemon88

        I’M VERY SURE HE IS NOT MOST LIKELY TO WIN. UPTO SENATOR LANG ANG WINABILITY NYA.

      • Batman

        I hope for our country’s sake you are right.

    >>>3 Chinese ships in disputed waters—Japan<<<

    THAT'S oke-oke, Tomadachi. All land in world is belong to china. :)

  • Adrienne1225

    China is afraid of Japan. They are looking for smaller weak country to bully like Philippines and Vietnam. They are running out of resources and their only hope is to intrude other territory to feed their big population. If I were Japan I will send fighter jets and stike the ship of chinese bully, so their bullying activities will put into an end.
