Four Chinese ships on Saturday entered disputed waters in East Asia Sea and the Japanese coastguard told them to leave the disputed waters.

After the four Chinese ships sailed into waters around islands known in Japanese as the Senkaku Islands and known in Chinese as the Diaoyu Islands on Saturday, the Japanese coastguard warned the Chinese ships to leave the disputed waters.

On Wednesday, four other ships entered Japanese territorial waters and the Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida had warned China after the ships spent more than a day in Japanese territorial waters, as marking Chinese ships' longest incursion at the long-lasting sea dispute.

An official from Japanese foreign ministry had said that Tokyo called China to deliver its objection and after that submitted a protest letter to China’s acting Ambassador Han Zhiqiang over the event.

The long-running dispute has increased the tension between China and Japan just right after Japan nationalized some of the disputed islands in last September.
