Japan should treat blue water training of PLA navy rationally (2)

(People's Daily Online)

08:20, October 24, 2012

Japan accused China of violating the "crisis management mechanism" and not notifying Japanese side in advance. In fact, the "crisis management mechanism" has not been established between Chinese and Japanese defense departments and the so-called "consensus" that Chinese fleets should notify the Japanese side before passing through the straits nearby Japan does not exist. In terms of both international laws and bilateral relations, China has the right to sail freely in relevant waters and bears no responsibility of notification in advance.

What deserves attention is that Japan frequently dispatches military naval vessels to track and monitor the blue sea trainings of China at short range, interfering with the regular sailing of Chinese fleets. It can easily lead to maritime and air security incidents, which damage bilateral mutual trust and regional peace and stability.

China adheres to the path of peaceful development and Chinese army is a staunch force of safeguarding the global peace. The Chinese navy will deepen security cooperation with other countries to better fulfill its international obligations. Chinese warships will pass through more international straits and waters in the future to carry out blue sea trainings. If some people still make a fuss about the regular blue sea training of China, they need to adjust their mind to treat it rationally.
