Asahi reported on a decision to incorporate the China Coast Guard (CCG) into the Chinese People’s Armed Police Force under the auspices of the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Military Commission on July 1. Because the coast guard’s boats will effectively be operated by the People’s Liberation Army, the GOJ is reportedly worried that its operations in the vicinity of the Senkakus may become even more aggressive. Defense Minister Onodera commented on the plan yesterday by telling the press: “Japan is determined to safeguard its territory, territorial airspace, and territorial waters, including in the vicinity of the Senkakus.”
