Japan mulls next step in island dispute
Voice of America
Japan is considering what do with 14 Chinese activists who were arrested after landing on a disputed island. Jeffrey Kingston, a faculty member at Temple University, Japan Campus, says another issue is complicating the dispute. “(Japan's) central government has moved in to say 'You can't buy it, we want to buy it.' And meanwhile China is looking on, nonplussed, saying 'This is beside the point. This is Chinese territory,'” he said.
