The Japanese side reportedly voiced strong concern about Beijing’s recent enactment of a law empowering its coast guard to use weapons while patrolling “areas under China’s control,” asking that Beijing explain how the statute will be administered, including the geographical scope of its application. The Japanese participants also requested that the coast guard refrain from conducting intrusive operations in the vicinity of the Senkakus.
