On the 9th, two ships of the China Coast Guard invaded Japan's territorial waters off the coast of the Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture.

As the vessels have moved closer to Japanese fishing vessels, the Japan Coast Guard continues to warn them to ensure their safety and to leave the territorial waters immediately.

According to the 11th Division Maritime Security Headquarters, two ships of the China Coast Guard, which were navigating the contiguous zone just outside the territorial waters of Japan before 7:00 am on the 9th, were in Japan off the southern islet of the Senkaku Islands. It is said that it invaded the territorial waters of Japan and showed a movement to approach Japanese fishing boats.



As of 7:00 am, the two vessels are sailing within the territorial waters of Japan, about 21 km south-southeast of Minami Kojima and about 22 km southeast.



The Japan Coast Guard has patrol boats navigating around the fishing boats to ensure the safety of the fishing boats and continues to warn them to leave the territorial waters immediately.



This is the seventh time that a CCG ship has been confirmed to invade Japan's territorial waters off the coast of the Senkaku Islands since the 12th of last month.
