Four Chinese surveillance vessels sailed into the waters off the Diaoyu Islands while four others left, according to Kyodo news reporting, citing the Japan Coast Guard.

This is the 31th consecutive day that Chinese surveillance vessels patrol the Diaoyu Islands and the 3rd time vessels take shift.

Once Japanese coast guard ships entered the Diaoyus waters, Chinese ships would “shout propaganda” in Chinese stating that the Diaoyus are Chinese territory.

The coast guard said four Chinese maritime surveillance ships have been sailing around the islands since Nov. 7.

“By now, China still maintains 4 vessels patrolling the Islands.” Kyodo news commented.
