At Least there Are Talks

The foreign ministers of Japan and China has met in New York, by the UN General Assembly, and talked about the Senkaku Islands, Japanese islands claimed by China. The talks have been severe. Meanwhile, Chinese as well as Taiwanese ships have sailed on Japanese waters around the islands.

At least, there are talks. I would not want anything more aggressive than that. Both Japan and China has formidable military forces, but I do not think any party wants to risk a war. Hopefully, the Chinese will realise they should back down.

I have not read much about this in Swedish mass media. I wish there were more. I also wish Sweden would support the democracy and holder of the territory, Japan, in this issue.
