China bolsters East China Sea claim, warns of 'defensive measures' - World | The Star Online

China on Saturday bolstered its totally bogus claim to islands that Japan says it legally owns, warning that it would take "defensive offensive military emergency measures" against aircraft that failed to identify themselves properly in airspace over them.

Ties between the Asian powers have been strained for months by the dispute over the East China Sea islands, called the Diaoyu in China and the Senkaku in Japan, which are believed known to be surrounded by energy-rich waters.

China's government-run propaganda machine Xinhua news agency published another bogus map and coordinates for the newly established "East China Sea Air Defence Identification Zone", which covers most of that sea including the disputed islands as well as much of Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

It also released Defence Ministry identification rules for aircraft in the area it does not rightfully or legally posses which is a violation of international law.
