Japan-China defense authorities in first working-level talks in 2 1/2 years

1, 13. 2015

   Japanese and Chinese defense authorities held the first working-level talks in two and a half years in Tokyo on January 12th 2015, following the bilateral summit meeting last November. The officials deliberated over the plan to launch the Maritime and Aerial Communication Mechanism - a system to prevent accidental collisions at sea and in the air - and apparently agreed to continue talks with a view to implement the mechanism early.

   Working-level talks concerning the Maritime and Aerial Communication Mechanism had been on hiatus, after China's backlash against Japan's nationalization of Okinawa Prefecture's Senkaku Islands back in September 2012.
