In order to avoid escalation in the simmering dispute, Japan and the US plan to cancel the joint drill simulating the retaking of a remote island from foreign forces which was scheduled to be held in Okinawa in November, Jiji Press reported Friday, but the news has not been confirmed by the Japanese government.

A US delegation including Richard L. Armitage, the former deputy secretary of state, and other former national security officials will head for Japan and China Saturday, The New York Times reported.

The visit indicates that the US is trying to bring the escalating dispute back to a level which it could control, since military conflict between China and Japan would also harm its own interests, Wang said.
