Senkaku / Diaoyu issue : Japan Protests over China Drilling Vessel in Disputed Waters

Senkaku/Diaoyu issue
Japan has protested to China for allowing a gas drilling vessel to operate in disputed waters in the East China Sea, the government said on Friday.

Japan and China agreed to jointly develop gas fields in the area in 2008 but talks have since stopped, Reuters reported.

"It is extremely regrettable that China continues its unilateral development in the sea area in a situation where the maritime boundary between Japan and China has not been fixed in the East China Sea," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference.

Suga said Japan would continue to urge China to return to talks.
