Dozens of Taiwanese vessels and coastguard ships have entered waters around a disputed island chain also claimed by the worldÂ’s second and third largest economies, China and Japan.

"Tens of fishing boats entered the waters. They were accompanied by six Taiwanese coastguard ships," a spokesman for the Japanese coastguard said on Tuesday.

The arrival of the Taiwanese boats may further escalate tensions in the region over the disputed islands.

"We have made contact with the Taiwan authorities, and told them that they cannot enter our territorial waters," Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura told a press conference in Tokyo on Tuesday.

Media reports say the Taiwanese boats have finished their 'protest move' against "Japan's illegal purchase" of the Islands and will return to a port in northeast Taiwan's Yilan county at noon on Wednesday.

Japan's coastguard said on Monday that two Chinese maritime surveillance ships had spent seven hours in sovereign waters off Uotsurijima, the largest in the chain of the contested islands.

The disputed territories, known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan, have been the subject of a long-running row between Tokyo and Beijing.

Tensions heightened between Tokyo and Beijing after Japan signed a deal on September 11 to buy three of the islands from their private Japanese owners in line with plans to nationalize the archipelago.

The uninhabited islands are located near a crucial shipping lane and would give the owner exclusive oil, mineral, and fishing rights in the surrounding waters.

That shit was a joke. It was like watching synchronized swimming, but with boats and Japan had water cannons. In the end of the day, the boats all went home. What a waste of fucking money and time.

And I heard the China fishing boats were even more pathetic since they just stayed along the borders and watched.

Seriously, the more stupid shit Taiwan and China keeps doing in this dispute, the more China and Taiwan are proving they dont deserve those islands. Just flat out embarressing.

Taiwan is playing stooopid game and U.S will abandon Taiwan soon.....just watch!!!!!!!!!!

U.S gave Senkaku to Japan after WW-2 for a good reason that U.S wanted to isolate China....and U.S predicted China would fight back but its all in vain!

China will never be able to take over or control whatever is being controlled by Japan, Russia and U.S!
