Yesterday, ships sailing around the disputed Senkaku Islands around 4:30 p.m. local time approached the islands of Uotsuri and Taişo in the region, according to the 11th Coast Guard Headquarters of Naha District of State of Okinawa, in the southwest of the country.

The Japanese coastguard has warned Chinese ships to leave the area.

Chinese-flagged vessels have entered Japanese land waters around Senkaku 16 times this year, according to public broadcaster NHK.

AUTHORITY TO USE WEAPONS

The law, which entered into force in China on February 1, allows its own coastguards to use weapons against foreign ships that violate the rules.

The Kyodo agency reported that the law allows China to target Japanese ships sailing around the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.

The East China Sea archipelago, which Japan calls “Senkaku” and China “Diaoyu”, consists of 5 islands and 3 cliffs.
