Japan protests China’s operation of drilling platform in East China Sea

Nikkei reported online on the disclosure by Foreign Minister Kono this morning that the GOJ has filed a “stern protest” with the Chinese government following the recent finding that a Chinese drilling vessel was operating along the median line between the two nations in the East China Sea earlier this month. Kono said: “This is not conducive to building friendly ties…. It is truly regrettable that China continues to take actions aimed at unilateral development.” A total of 16 drilling platforms have reportedly been installed in the area.
