Offshore staff

TOKYO and BEIJING – Japan has posted photos of Chinese oil and gas activity in the East China Sea near disputed waters and is concerned about China drawing on reserves that extend into Japanese waters.

According to Reuters, China has responded that it has the right to develop resources in its waters and that Japan's actions will only serve to provoke confrontation between the two countries.

In a statement, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs urged China to return to talks about a 2008 agreement on joint development of resources in one area around the median line.
