On March 15, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the Japan Coast Guard confirmed around 9:25 a.m. the same day that the Chinese “Run Jiang 1” marine survey vessel lowered what appeared to be a wire into waters in Japan’s exclusive economic zone about 287 kilometers off northwest of Kumejima (Kumejima-cho, Okinawa Prefecture). MOFA concluded that China may have conducted scientific research without the consent of the Japanese government and through diplomatic channels lodged a protest saying that “this action is extremely regrettable and must be stopped immediately.”
