China-Japan dispute over Sankaku/Diaoyu islands
Transcript of China-Japan dispute over Sankaku/Diaoyu islands
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that this is "fully proven by history and is legally well-founded". Japan says it surveyed the islands for 10 years and determined that they were uninhabited.
14 January 1895 it erected a sovereignty marker that formally incorporated the islands into Japanese territory.
Japan says that it is only since the 1970s, when the issue of oil resources in the area emerged, that Chinese and Taiwanese authorities began pressing their claims. Economic downtown, as China is Japan’s top two-way trade partner since its two-way trade grows to $266.4 billion dollar in 2008.
Trade barriers imposed on goods exported to China
calls of boycotts of Japanese goods in addition to the destruction of several existing Japanese products.
Many Japanese businesses and factories in China were shuttered in reaction to the protests.
The Japanese car manufacturing industry has suffered a loss of $250 million between 15–21 September due to the production of about 14,000 cars being suspended. What is it about? The eight uninhabited islands and rocks which make up the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands are located in the East China Sea. They have a total area of about 7 sq km and lie northeast of Taiwan, east of the Chinese mainland and southwest of Japan's southern-most prefecture, Okinawa.
They matter because they are close to strategically important shipping lanes, offer rich fishing grounds and are thought to contain oil deposits.
Energy is clearly what's driving a lot of Chinese behavior," says Sheila Smith, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C. "They will give you a long, historical explanation of their sovereignty claim. But the idea that there are vast resources under the East China Sea just off their coast is a tremendous motivation for the intensity of their territorial dispute." Japan's Claim Economic Social 18 September, the Japanese right-wing group Ganbare Nippon, which had previously organized landings onto the disputed islands, organized an anti-Chinese counter-protest in Tokyo which commanded a turnout of about 50. Conclusion China’s territorial dispute with Japan is unlikely to result in military conflict. China has quite deliberately used civilian agencies, such as the China Marine Surveillance force, and private Chinese fishermen, to assert its sovereignty claims. The People’s Liberation Army Navy has been kept in the background. Provoking a military clash would be counterproductive; it would disrupt trade, threaten the security of sea lanes, cause insurance premiums to rise, and draw in the United States.
