PLA warship constantly deployed between Taiwan and Japan’s westernmost island 

Sankei gave top coverage to the disclosure by sources inside the Japanese government and the Taiwanese army that a PLA warship has continued to operate in the waters between Japan’s westernmost island of Yonaguni and Taiwan since last December. At least one warship from China’s East Sea Fleet has remained off the northwest coast of the Japanese isle for the entire time. According to the daily, the PLA Navy similarly deploys two warships north of the Senkakus constantly. The GOJ reportedly views the moves as attempts by Beijing to raise military tensions, speculating that the Chinese military is anxious to secure maritime routes for its warships to travel to the Pacific Ocean.
