Japan is considering plans to calm tensions with China by acknowledging Chinese claims to the disputed islands in the East China Sea, while maintaining its own position. Japan has refused to rescind its recent purchase in mid- September of three of the five Diaoyu islands from a so-called private Japanese owner, which the government says was meant to maintain the uninhabited islands in a stable manner, despite China ''s strong protest. It remains uncertain, however, whether China would be encouraged by the Japanese step to improve the tensioned ties.
