China vows to continue patrol operations near Senkakus

Yomiuri reported from Beijing on a social media message posted by the Chinese Defense Ministry on Monday regarding patrol operations carried out by China Coast Guard vessels in the vicinity of the Senkaku Islands. “It is justifiable and legitimate for Chinese government ships to conduct law enforcement operations in territorial waters,” the statement read. “We will continue to make them a regular activity.”  According to the daily, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson commented on the GOJ’s view that the Japanese side may use weapons if Chinese cutters approach the outcrops for the purpose of landing agents on them. “We would respond resolutely to any type of provocation,” said the Chinese official.
