Chapter Summary

The major disputes in which China has embroiled with Japan in the East China Sea consists of two: the maritime delimitation in the East China Sea and the sovereign status of the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands. Given the complexity and sensitivity of the issue, Chinese and Japanese leaders agreed on the policy of ?shelving the territorial disputes" when they signed the Sino-Japanese Treaty of Peace and Friendship in 1978. Although the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC) have a dispute over their relationship, they both try to represent China to claim the sovereignty of the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands. To build up a new framework to settle the disputes between China and Japan, China could make the ?optional clause declaration" to accept the compulsory jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and then bring Japan before the ICJ for settlement of the disputes in the East China Sea.

Keywords: Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands; East China Sea; International Court of Justice (ICJ); Japan; Sino-Japanese territorial disputes
