Japanese, Chinese ships exchange island warnings
Japanese, Chinese ships exchange warnings near disputed islands as tension mounts
TOKYO (AP) -- Chinese and Japanese government ships exchanged warnings Friday in waters near disputed islands in the East China Sea, while Tokyo called on Beijing to protect its citizens amid anti-Japan protests and reported assaults in China.
Tensions between the Asian giants have flared anew after the Japanese government bought the islands from their private Japanese owners this week. The uninhabited islands, claimed by both countries as well as Taiwan, have become a rallying point for nationalists on both sides.
In response to Japan's purchase, China on Friday sent six surveillance ships into what Japan says are its territorial waters around the islands, called Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China. Japanese coast guard ships radioed warnings to the Chinese vessels and two or three moved out of the territorial waters, said Yasuhiko Oku, a Japanese coast guard official.

The Japanese Government summoned the Chinese Ambassador on Tuesday to protest four Chinese maritime surveillance ships that steamed around in waters for half a day near disputed islands claimed by both countries.
The uninhabited outcroppings in the East China Sea, called Senkakus in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese, are controlled by Japan but are also claimed by Beijing and Taiwan.
Deputy Foreign Minister Akitaka Saiki called Ambassador Cheng Yonghua to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the four Chinese Government ships remained in waters off the islands for about 13 hours on Monday until just after midnight on early Tuesday, said Masaru Sato, a ministry official.
Tokyo (AsiaNews / Agencies) - Three Chinese ships entered in Japanese territorial waters today near the Senkaku / Diaoyu islands disputed between Tokyo and Beijing. The violation comes only a few hours from a warning issued by the United States, urging Beijing not to challenge the sovereignty of Tokyo.

Continuing China’s preferred method of protesting against Japan’s ownership of the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands, three Beijing patrol ships entered the waters around the territory on Tuesday morning, reported the Japan Coast Guard. While Japan’s nationalization of the islands took place in September of this year, escalating the tensions with China in the months that have followed, Beijing ships continue to routinely enter Japanese territorial waters without permission, usually at least several times a month.
Chinese fighter jets swarming near Senkaku islands
TOKYO: Chinese military planes, mostly fighter jets, made more than 40 flights close to Tokyo-controlled islands at the centre of a territorial dispute on a single day this week, a press report said Saturday.
The flights took place on Tuesday, when eight Chinese marine surveillance ships entered the 12-nautical-mile territorial zone off the islands in the East China Sea, which Japan calls the Senkakus and China calls the Diaoyus, the Sankei Shimbun newspaper reported.
