Japan seeks talks with China over maritime activities near Senkakus

Tokyo is seeking high-level talks with Beijing about Chinese vessels continuing to enter Japanese territorial waters around the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea despite repeated protests, a Japanese government source said Monday.

Japan is pursuing talks between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping, and between Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and his counterpart Wang Yi, the source said.

Tokyo wants to discuss the issue at the highest level after recent protests lodged by the Foreign Ministry seem to have been ineffective in dealing with the situation around the disputed islets, which China claims and calls Diaoyu.
