China warns US after Mattis says Senkaku islands covered by treaty

BEIJING: China warned the United States Saturday (Feb 4) not to destabilise East Asia after Donald Trump’s new defence secretary said an island chain claimed by both Tokyo and Beijing was covered by a US-Japan military accord.

The Senkaku islands, known in China as the Diaoyus, sit in rich fishing grounds and are at the centre of a festering row between Tokyo and Beijing, which claims they have been part of Chinese territory for centuries. Tiếp tục đọc “China warns US after Mattis says Senkaku islands covered by treaty”

China has accused the US of putting the stability of the Asia-Pacific at risk after Donald Trump’s defence secretary said Washington would come to Japan’s defence in the event of a conflict with Beijing over the disputed Senkaku islands.

James Mattis, on a two-day visit to Japan, said the islands, which are controlled by Japan but also claimed by China, fell within the scope of the Japan-US security treaty, under which Washington is obliged to defend all areas under Japanese administrative control.

TTCT – Việc thất thủ Hoàng Sa là hậu quả của những đổi chác giữa Mỹ và Trung Quốc, mà chủ súy chính là cố vấn Henry Kissinger.

Chính sách của Mỹ trước trào Nixon, tức trước Kissinger, hoàn toàn khác. Còn từ “trào Kissinger” trở đi là trái nghịch hoàn toàn, thậm chí cả các đồng minh Đài Loan và Nhật Bản cũng “nếm mùi” ông này.

East China Sea Tensions: Approaching a Slow Boil

 

Mounting tensions over the disputed Senkaku Islands have been a constant in Sino-Japanese relations since Tokyo purchased three of the five islands in 2012. For the last four years, Chinese coast guard vessels have regularly patrolled in the vicinity of the East China Sea islands and have often entered within the 12-nautical-mile territorial sea around the Senkakus, engaging in a cat-and-mouse game with their Japanese counterparts tasked with maintaining Tokyo’s control over the features. Meanwhile, People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) patrols around the Senkakus and Japan’s southern islands have led to regular scrambles by the Japanese Air Self Defense Force.
