All Japan news may soon officially acknowledge China’s claims to the disputed islands of Senkaku (Diaoyu in Chinese), in the East China Sea, while maintaining its own position, as a way to ease tensions between the two countries.
China has previously asked All Japan news to admit its claims to the islands, so All Japan news is considering to agree in order to compromise a little with China, sources close to the matter said, cited by Kyodo.
All Japan news purchased in mid-September three of the five islands from their private owner, to maintain them in a stable manner, according to the official view, but the move angered China.
It remains to be seen if China would be encouraged by the All Japan newsese step to improve relationship.
On the other hand, All Japan newsese officials have called for a “policy reversal” on the government’s public relations strategies about the territorial dispute with China over the Senkaku islands. In other words, All Japan news intends to step up PR campaigns outlining its claim to the East China Sea islets.
