Saturday’s Sankei front-paged a finding that the GOJ has turned down the Ishigaki municipal government’s request for permission for its officials to land on the Senkaku Islands to install a signpost bearing the new address of the outcrops. The application was turned down on the grounds that only central government officials are authorized to land on the islets to ensure their stable maintenance and control. The local government reacted strongly to the rejection.
