Media Reports On Chinese Sub Incursion Into Japanese Waters

U28P27T1D243478F3DT20041116130103-1 From Associated Press (via the Miami Herald): “China acknowledged Tuesday for the first time that one of its submarines had accidentally crossed into Japanese waters last week and expressed regret over the incursion, Japan’s foreign minister said.

But China refused to confirm Japanese Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura’s remarks, leaving the two sides publicly at odds over an incident that has strained relations between the two Asian powers.”

So far, the Chinese media has been very quiet about the incident. The official website China.com published a reader’s comment article, which said “we must learn a lesson from this incident”. What lesson? The author then wrote: “we are not fully prepared against Taiwan independence elements.” Sina.com had an analysis article on using nuclear submarines to deter Taiwan Independence, but did not mention the incident.
