VIVA World – A Chinese coast guard vessel equipped with the largest gun ever seen on such a vessel entered Japanese territorial waters near the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, on Friday, November 25, 2022, the Japanese coast guard said.
The Japanese coast guard said that four Chinese coast guard vessels, including the vessel with the gun, were detected in the waters of the uninhabited island — Senkaku — which Tokyo controls and which is claimed by Beijing.
The incident comes days after the leaders of the two Asian powers held their first high-level meeting since 2019.

Then at around 10:00 am, two more Chinese ships arrived in Japanese waters with one carrying a 76 mm gun.
