US Welcomes Japan Activities in South China Sea

  • Published on Sep 16, 2016
    The U-S Navy says they seek to enhance cooperative efforts with the Japanese to contribute to the security and stability of the region. This comes after Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada said Tokyo is to step up its activity in the South China Sea through joint training patrols with the U-S and bilateral and multilateral exercises with regional navies. Inada also said Japan, which has its own territorial dispute with China in the East China Sea, will help build the capacity of coastal states in the South China Sea. Japan has already expressed readiness to provide Vietnam and the Philippines, which have claims over the South China Sea, with new patrol ships and surveillance aircraft.
