NHK reported this afternoon that according to the 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters, two of the four Chinese coast guard vessels that were sailing in the contiguous zone near the Senkakus entered Japan’s territorial waters and tried to approach a Japanese fishing boat. The two vessels were reportedly still within the territorial waters as of 11:50 a.m., and the Japan Coast Guard was protecting the Japanese fishing boat and warning the Chinese vessels to immediately leave the territorial waters. This is reportedly the 15th time for China Coast Guard vessels to enter Japanese territorial waters near the Senkakus this year.
