T'graph: Relations Between Britain & China Strained Over Naval Ship's Visit To Japan

#1
"A visit by the Royal Navy’s most senior officer to Japan, at the same time as the Prime Minister was in China, has risked a new diplomatic rift between London and Beijing.

Admiral George Zambellas, the First Sea Lord, met Itsunori Onodera, Japan’s defence minister, last week and reportedly pledged his support for the Japanese military.

The intervention came amid a growing military stand-off between Japan and China over a set of islands in the East China sea."

Who's unhappy?? Daring made visits to both countries. Now Daring is visiting Vietnam, another traditional enemy for China. Grow up Japan and China.

Wow: I wonder what 1SL actually said. I also wonder how well it translated, whatever it was, via Nip to Choge. We've all bought stuff made in China/S Korea/Taiwan with instructions that are gibberish. Adml George doesn't appear to be a dummy; far from it.
