The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has lodged a protest against China through a diplomatic channel for broadcasting video footage of the area surrounding the Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture, which is believed to have been filmed using a drone, before Sept. 5. In May, a Chinese ship flew a drone near the Senkakus, which prompted the Air Self-Defense Force to scramble two F-15 fighter jets.
