A United States Congress report says that although the US considers the Diaoyu Islands subject to the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty, it has never recognized Japan’s sovereignty over the territories.

The report, published last month, said the US only recognizes Japan’s administrative power over Diaoyu Islands. It states that U.S. administrations take no position on the territorial dispute between Japan and China. However, it also states that the Islands still fall under the ambit of the Treaty, which stipulates that the US is bound to protect “the territories under the Administration of Japan”.
