Yomiuri wrote that senior working-level officials of the Japanese and Chinese governments held online talks on Monday and agreed to expedite discussions on setting up a hot line between senior officials of their militaries under the two countries’ maritime and aerial communication mechanism in view of the growing tensions in waters near the Senkaku Islands. The paper wrote that although Japan and China agreed in May 2018 to set up such a hot line to prevent accidental clashes between the SDF and the Chinese military near the Senkakus, the implementation of the plan has been delayed due to technical problems.
