Taiwan Urges Japan To Play Leading Role To Ensure Regional Peace Story dated 25 January 2005
"Japan should play a more leading role in Asian affairs to help prevent mainland China from treading a policy line of adventurism, a Taiwan official said in Tokyo Tuesday." Pointing out that Beijing has a basic "ignorance of human rights," Lo Fu-chuan, president of the quasi-official Association of East Asian Relations, told Tokyo politicians that the ramifications of China's anti-secession law could include a destabilization of the entire region. "Should the "anti-secession law" be enacted, Lo said its target could include not only Taiwan but also the disputed Tiaoyutai Islands, which are known as the Senkakus in Japan. The island group is now under Japan's control, but both sides of the Taiwan Strait claim sovereignty over the island group." You may remember Beijing whining about Japan's defensive plans regarding certain islands claimed by both Japan and the totalitarian Chinese government. As you can see, it is China and not Japan who is doing the provoking here. _____________________________________________
