Japan and China enter talks
over bitter island dispute

Leaders meet at
U.N. and in Beijing
as tensions rise
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) - Japan
and China are taking small steps
to dampen a bitter dispute over
a group of small islands in the
East China Sea following an
intense but seemingly controlled
confrontation over the islands'
sovereignty that introduced
wildcard Taiwan in the fray.
Foreign ministers from Tokyo
and Beijing met late Tuesday on
the sidelines of the U.N. General
Assembly in New York to discuss
the issue, two weeks after the
Japanese government's purchase
of some of the islands from pri-
vate owners sparked bitter anti-
Japanese protests in China and
raised tensions between the two
Asian giants to their highest level
in years.
Vice foreign ministers from
the two countries met the same
day in Beijing.
Despite the promise of the
meetings, it is still too early
to conclude that the crisis has
passed. China is almost certainto
send its own vessels to challenge
Japanese control of the islands,
raising the possibility of armed

conflict arising from mistake or
Tuesday's Japan-China meet-
ings came just hours after Japa-
nese and Taiwanese coast guard
cutters exchanged water cannon
blasts just off the islands, known
as the Senkakus in Japan and the
Diaoyu or Diaoyuitai in China
and Taiwan. Taiwan also claims
the islands, which sit astride rich
fishing waters and potentially
large reserves of natural gas.
Taiwan, which split from
China amid civil war in 1949 but
has been drawing ever closer to
Beijing in the 4 /a years since Ma
Ying-jeou became president, has
become a wild card in the Japan-
China dispute, staking out what
it claims is an independent stance
to assert its sovereignty over the
But reflecting its claim that
Taiwan is part of its territory,
China has gone out of its way to
suggest that Taipei's interest in
the islands is identical with its
own. Following Tuesday's con-
frontation between the two coast
guards, China's state-controlled
media offered clear validation
of the Taiwanese actions, pre-
senting detailed coverage of the
presence of some 50 Taiwanese
fishing boats and 12 coast guard
vessels in the disputed island

During the confrontation, the
two sides used water cannon for
the first time, an apparent*esca-
lation in their previously low-key
tactics. But the almost ritualis-
tic nature of the exchange - the
sides separated after only a few
minutes, and the Taiwanese flo-
tilla returned to Taiwan - sug-
gested that Tokyo and Taipei
were operating within carefully
prescribed parameters and they
had no interest in letting things
get out of hand.
Neither Tokyo nor Beijing has
released a full account of the New
York meeting, though the mere
fact it occurred raises hopes of
a peaceful solution to the crisis
between an ascendant China,
flush with tens of billions of dol-
lars of foreign exchange reserves
and a rapidly expanding military,
and a Japan that seems eager to
prove that despite long years of
economic drift it still remains a
power to be reckoned with.
China's official Xinhua News
Agency reported that Chinese
Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi
told Japanese counterpart Koi-
chiro Gemba that the Japanese
government's island purchase
constituted "a serious challenge
