Dialogue 11/28/2012 Japan risks clashes in E.China sea

Japan''s "purchase" and "nationalization" of China''s Diaoyu Islands is putting China-Japan economic and trade ties at risk due to man-made factors. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda officially dissolved the House of Representatives on Nov 16 and there will be a general election on Dec 16. However, neither the ruling Democratic Party of Japan nor the opposition parties are well positioned ahead of the elections. Japan''s politics are a muddle with some political parties just debuting and some political forces in the process of planning new political parties. The political landscape in Japan changes quickly, and the trend of Sino-Japanese relations after the election is closely linked with the policy direction of the ruling party. Japanese politicians should be working to mend the holes they have created in bilateral relations with China rather than taking aggression one step further.
