Early in the morning of the 21st, two ships of the China Coast Guard invaded Japan's territorial waters off the coast of the Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture.

Since then, the ship has shown a move toward approaching Japanese fishing vessels, and the Japan Coast Guard has been working to ensure the safety of the fishing vessels and has continued to warn them to leave the territorial waters immediately.

According to the 11th Division Maritime Security Headquarters, at around 4:10 am on the 21st, two ships of the China Coast Guard invaded Japan's territorial waters one after another off the coast of Uotsuri Island in the Senkaku Islands, and then operated in the territorial waters. It means that they showed a movement to approach the Japanese fishing boat inside.



As of 4:20 am, the two vessels are navigating within the territorial waters of Japan about 20 km southwest of Uotsuri Island, so the Japan Coast Guard has patrol vessels navigating around the fishing vessels to ensure the safety of the fishing vessels. At the same time, we continue to warn you to leave the territorial waters immediately.



This is the 11th time that a CCG ship has been confirmed to have invaded Japan's territorial waters off the coast of the Senkaku Islands since June 18.
