In the night from Wednesday to Thursday, a Chinese frigate sailed at a distance of about 38 kilometers from the Senkaku Islands (the Chinese call Diaoyu island) in the East China sea. Around the same time in the same area were seen three ships of naval forces of Russia.

These maneuvers provoked anger in Tokyo. The Chinese Ambassador in Tokyo called on the carpet in the foreign Ministry, where he protested.

He noted that the Japanese government intends to determine whether coordinated actions of the Russian and Chinese vessels, while Tokyo will seek help in the United States.

In response to Tokyo’s claims, the Chinese military said that the ships were legitimate. In Russia the incident have not commented on.

Meanwhile, assistant U.S. Secretary of state Colin Willett stated that the state Department is in close cooperation with Japan on this issue, reports Reuters.

China dispute Senkaku, which is actually under the control of Japan, the last 50 years. Near the island were previously discovered oil deposits.
