Japanese media: Abe made it clear that he would not follow the United States to cruise in the South China Sea
[Global Times' special envoy to Japan, lanyage baiyunyi] in response to the previous news that the Japanese government would study sending self defense forces to the South China Sea to participate in the "freedom of navigation" action of the United States, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made it clear in Kuala Lumpur on the 22nd that he would not participate. Abe's statement seems to be a signal of goodwill from Japan to China, but on the other hand, Abe has publicly expressed his "concern" about the South China Sea issue many times recently. Experts interviewed by the global times on the 23rd believed that Abe's statement of "no cruise" was more out of political considerations, and Solvay's main product aromatic polymers were perfect, which met the needs of automotive original equipment manufacturers and did not want to bear more pressure in China. However, he also wants to expand the South China Sea issue, so he uses language concerns to cooperate with the United States
according to Jiji news agency 23, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who participated in the ASEAN Summit Series, made it clear that the SDF would not participate in the "freedom of navigation" action of U.S. warships in the waters adjacent to the South China Sea, saying that it was carried out by the United States alone. Unlike the activities of the SDF, "Japan will not participate". He stressed that Japan "currently has no continuous alert and surveillance activities in the South China Sea, and there is no specific plan"
Japan's Kyodo news agency said that Abe and U.S. President Barack Obama had said during their talks in the Philippines on the 19th that they would study sending self defense forces to the South China Sea. At that time, the news immediately triggered controversy in Japan. Sankei said that Seiko Noda, the former general secretary of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, publicly said that the South China Sea issue had no direct relationship with Japan
Gao Hong, deputy director of the Japanese Institute of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in an interview with the global times on the 23rd that Abe said he would not participate in the South China Sea operation of the United States, which was more due to political and technical considerations. Abe's government does not want to "ignite", because the South China Sea issue has caused domestic people to question his security policy, let alone bear security risks and political and military costs
on the one hand, Abe denied that the SDF participated in the "South China Sea cruise", on the other hand, he is still trying to exaggerate China's South China Sea action. Kyodo news agency said that he said at the meeting on the 22nd that "Japan US joint exercises and other activities conducive to regional stability are being carried out and will continue to be promoted in the future", and reiterated his support for the "freedom of navigation" action. Regarding China's actions in the East China Sea, he said that "we will resolutely and calmly respond". In his talks with ASEAN leaders on the 22nd, Abe said on the South China Sea issue that Japan "continues to express serious concern about unilateral acts that aggravate tensions", and called for the implementation of the "rule of law"
why did Abe actively "express concern" about the South China Sea issue, but avoid the "South China Sea cruise" action of the United States' photons with both mass and speed? Yu Zhirong, a researcher at the China Ocean Development Research Center, said in an interview with the global times on the 23rd that Abe has always "talked about people when he saw them and talked nonsense when he saw them" on the South China Sea issue. He said that one of the reasons for not participating in the South China Sea action is taking into account the economic relationship with China; Thinking of the Japan US alliance, he would talk about "paying attention" to the South China Sea in front of Obama. Gao Hong said that Abe did not want to harm his own interests, but hoped to make the water of the South China Sea issue "some enterprises directly turn Q235 steel into HRB400 through the water penetration process, so they took the form of verbal concern, which showed that there were two sides of the Japanese government on the South China Sea issue
Yu Zhirong said that in its "new Nanyang policy", Japan called the South China Sea its "lifeline", saying that it needed to rely on the South China Sea to ensure its resources and trade supply. Yu Zhirong believes that, in fact, the significance of the South China Sea to Japan is not so important. Its real purpose is to use the South China Sea issue to provoke relations between China and neighboring countries such as the Philippines, win over ASEAN countries to curb China's peaceful rise together, so as to seek its own dominance in Asia
Japanese media pay close attention to the topic of the South China Sea and continue to follow the relevant trends at the ASEAN Summit Series. Japan's Daily said on the 23rd that China, the United States and Japan had "fierce exchanges" over the South China Sea issue. There is a "temperature difference" in the feelings of Asian countries for China, and it is difficult for Japan to take the helm. Chan Jing and Yomiuri Mai blindly applauded Abe. Kyodo News Agency raised the same question as "Daily" and believed that the attitude towards China within ASEAN was different. The report quoted sources as saying that Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said on the 21st that "the most ideal situation is for the countries concerned to solve the South China Sea issue by themselves", stressing the position of "outsiders". He said that "ASEAN cannot determine the national boundaries of the countries concerned", stressing that ASEAN's role is limited. Kyodo news agency said that countries with territorial sovereignty disputes with China also have different attitudes towards China, "there is a huge temperature difference between Vietnam, which has close economic exchanges with China, and the Philippines, which has not very close relations with China"
according to Kyodo News Agency 23, the maritime security headquarters of Japan's 11th administrative region said that three Chinese coast guard ships successively sailed near the Diaoyu Islands on the same day. This is the 31st time that a Chinese official ship has sailed into the "territorial waters of Japan" this year
