Recently the Yomiuri News reported the following:
In the morning on the 14th at a press conference after the Cabinet Council meeting, the Hasumoyai administration reform minister described the event about the arrested the captain of a Chinese fishing boat that collided with the patrol boat of the Japan Coast Guard in Japanese territorial waters around Senkaku Islands in East China Sea, "It was necessary to calmly send out the Japanese standpoint decisively because it was a territorial issue, and should not fall into the emotionally-charged argument". Afterwards, at a meeting with reporters in Tokyo it was explained that｢There was one expression that gave a false impression. Now makes the correction. Senkaku all along belongs to my country in history and in International Law｣. And the standpoint taken by the government over Senkaku Islands was that "The territorial issue doesn't exist".
It seems that the dispute would continue for a while and I hope it can be resolved peacefully.
