China-Japan: Senkaku Islands Dispute

The Senkaku Islands dispute, or Diaoyu Islands dispute, concerns a territorial dispute over a gaggle of uninhabited islands referred to as the Senkaku Islands in Japan, the Diaoyu Islands in China and Tiaoyutai Islands in Taiwan. Eight uninhabited islands dwell the East China Sea. They have a complete area of about 7 sq km and lie northeast of Taiwan.

The Senkakus island chain has been administered by Japan since 1972, but its status has remained disputed so far. Both Japan and China claim ownership of those islands. Recently, a local council in southern Japan has approved a bill to change the name of an area containing Senkaku Islands from Tonoshiro to Tonoshiro Senkaku.

Significance for India:

  • The development from Japan came just after the violent clash between Indian and Chinese troops over the road of Actual Control in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.
  • Given the trade volume and economic dependency that’s the foremost dominant feature of the bilateral relationship, it might be crucial for India to act wisely.
  • By supporting the japanese move, India can diplomatically strengthen its position over Galwan Valley.
  • However, Taiwan’s engagement within the dispute is critical because it has supported India over the galwan valley but opposes the move of Japan.
  • China has also augmented its naval power to strengthen its overall presence within the Indian Ocean . The move of Japan would give a chance to India to possess a strategic edge over its presence within the Indian Ocean .
