Japan to increase activities in South China Sea, defense minister says

Japan's defense minister says its forces will increase engagement in the South China Sea through training cruises with the U.S. Navy and multilateral exercises with regional navies.

Newly appointed Defense Minister Tomomi Inada says Japan will also help build the capacity of coastal nations. She was speaking ahead her first meeting with U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter Thursday in Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This tactic, apparently encouraged and enabled by the US government, appears to be engineered to further infuriate China to the point of provoking a potential military response.
