SDHF Newsletter No. 30:The Senkaku Islands Controversy

SDHF Newsletter No. 30:The Senkaku Islands Controversy

September 15, 2010

On September 7, a Chinese fishing boat was found violating Japanese
territorial waters near the Senkaku Islands. Japan Coast Guard patrol
boats announced warnings but the fishing boat not only ignored them but
also repeated dangerous actions and even collided in to the patrol boat.
The ship was detained and the captain was arrested.

Against this incident the government of the People’s Republic of China
issued a strong protest to the Japanese government. Their ground for
protest is that the Senkaku Islands are within their territory. But this
is completely baseless. Until 1968, when the U.N. Asian Far East announced
the possibility of a treasure trove of oil and natural gas under the
continental shelf in that area, the PRC admitted the Islands were in the
territorial domination of Japan.

Mr. Takahana’s paper in our site shows incontrovertible evidence on this matter.
