Nikkei took up the disclosure by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga this morning that according to the Japan Coast Guard, a Chinese marine research vessel was apparently conducting a survey by dropping what appeared to be a wire into the water in Japan’s EEZ off its southernmost island of Okinotorishima on Thursday without obtaining Japanese permission. The government spokesman was quoted as saying Japan “has filed a protest through a diplomatic channel, demanding an immediate halt” to the operation.
