“The Basic View on the Sovereignty over the Senkaku Islands” : quoted from the official website of MOFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan) is “There is no doubt that the Senkaku Islands are clearly an inherent part of the territory of Japan, in light of historical facts and based upon international law. Indeed, the Senkaku Islands are under the valid control of Japan. There exists no issue of territorial sovereignty to be resolved concerning the Senkaku Islands.” If you look at this, you tend to think as that since conducted a Cabinet decision that the Meiji government incorporated the Senkaku Islands in 1895, the government had claimed so consistently. However, I was reviewing the official documents and related parliamentary proceedings, the government had stated in the first “There exists no issue of territorial sovereignty to be resolved concerning the Senkaku Islands”, said that it is an April 1985 I made it clear in the essay. Some earlier studies acknowledged at the Japanese Government had been denied territorial issue since 1990s. However, in my research, I could not find a study that clarified the Foreign Minister, Mr. ABE Shintaro as the origin. Moreover, the answer of the Foreign Minister Abe, realistic view, which can be a hint to solve the Senkaku a “problem” are also included. Based on such abnormally close by the Chinese military aircraft to the SDF machine, also tension situation to continue then greatly retouched in part of the contents of my master thesis, you want to recommend policy solutions Senkaku Islands dispute.
