What could trigger a conflict on the Diaoyu Islands? According to an article published this month by Zhong Weilun, a senior researcher at the yusov Isaac Institute of Southeast Asia in Singapore, CNN quoted, compared with other hot spots in this region, such as the South China Sea, Taiwan, North Korea nuclear issue, the Diaoyu island dispute between China and Japan combines many elements such as history, honor and territory, so it is unique and flammable.. According to the report, the US think tank maritime transparency initiative in Asia once described a scene in which a person from a shipwrecked ship or aircraft landed on the Diaoyu Island. If a Chinese fishing boat, marine police or military personnel landed on the Diaoyu Island, Japans maritime security would undoubtedly take action to expel them.. However, in view of Chinas non recognition of Japans sovereignty claim, it is possible for Beijing to see it as an escalation of the situation, so as to make a substantive military response.
In fact, there is more or less the shadow of the United States behind the disputes between China and its neighboring countries. Li Haidong analyzed that, therefore, it must be stressed that Asian countries have the ability to handle their own regional affairs, and the US media should not interpret the territorial disputes between China and its neighboring countries in a matter of choice way.
