Viewpoints: How serious are China-Japan tensions?



An aerial photo shows the Chinese marine surveillance ship Haijian No. 51 (L) cruising as a Japan Coast Guard ship Ishigaki sails near Uotsuri island, one of the disputed islands, called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, in the East China Sea in this file photograph from 14 September 2012

In the latest development, Japan says a Chinese frigate locked weapon-targeting radar on one of its navy ships in waters near the islands, called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China. Five experts assess how serious the situation is.

Overview: Christopher Hughes

The situation is certainly the most serious for Sino-Japanese relations in the post-war period in terms of the risk of militarised conflict.

Japan-China disputed islands

  • The archipelago consists of five islands and three reefs

  • The islands were also the focus of a major diplomatic row between Japan and China in 2010
