China Coast Guard vessels patrol Diaoyu Islands

China’s State Oceanic Administration on September 10 announced it would initiate vessel patrols in the Diaoyu Islands waters. The move is considered a bid from the Chinese government to put pressure on Japan, given that September 11 of this year marked the first anniversary of the Japanese government’s so-called nationalization of the islands.

The picture, released by the Japanese media, shows a China Coast Guard vessel cruising neck to neck with a Japanese Coast Guard ship near the Diaoyu Islands waters. Seven China Coast Guard ships entered the Diaoyu Islands waters around 10:30 a.m. on September 10, with one more appearing in the region later that afternoon, according to the Japanese Coast Guard patrol ships.
