Japan lodges protest with South Korea over demand to halt survey in East China Sea

Mainichi wrote that the Japan Coast Guard announced on Monday that a South Korean government ship demanded that a JCG survey ship halt a survey it was conducting in the East China Sea off Nagasaki at around 3:20 a.m. on Monday and repeated the demand for about six hours. Nikkei wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato told reporters on Tuesday that Japan has lodged a protest with South Korea over the incident. Kato reportedly said that the demand was unacceptable to Japan because the survey was being conducted in Japan’s EEZ.
