TOKYO - Japan is considering plans to calm tensions with China by acknowledging Chinese claims to the disputed islands in the East China Sea, while maintaining its own position, Kyodo News cited sources as saying on Tuesday.

The report said that the plans would allow Japan, without changing its long-held position, to compromise a little with China, which has called on Tokyo to acknowledge the existence of a dispute over the Chinese Diaoyu Islands, referred to as Senkaku Islands in Japan.

Japan has refused to rescind its recent purchase in mid-September of three of the five Diaoyu islands from a so-called private Japanese owner, which the government says was meant to maintain the uninhabited islands in a stable manner, despite China's strong protest.

It remains uncertain, however, whether China would be encouraged by the Japanese step to improve the tensioned ties, said Kyodo.

JAPAN IS TRYING TO BUY TIME AND PLAYING KINGMAKER IN U.S. POLITICS.  IT IS WAITING FOR OBAMA LOSE THE ELECTION, BEFORE IT FLAT OUT REJECTS ANY FURTHER NEGOTIATIONS OVER CHINA'S CLAIM OF SOVEREIGNTY.  JAPAN ALREADY SAID AND AGAIN REPEATED ITS STANCE THAT THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT JAPAN'S SOVEREIGNTY OVER DIAOYUTAI.

China probably is indifferent to either candidate.  It might just go ahead and retake Diaoyutai whenever the weather permits.  That's the way of a new superpower.

There is already an op-ed piece floating out there that says China should grab Japan's offer to discuss China's claim of sovereignty, but not Japan's claim of sovereignty, as an opportunity to avoid an economic slowdown in China, keep its GDP above 8%, and simply acquiesce to Japan continuing to exercise jurisdiction over Diaoyutai, while both governments continue to discuss China's claim of sovereignty.

Thiis kind of appeasement is a betrayal of China's national interest and should be opposed.

China can discuss Japan's claim of sovereignty, after it has re-established its effective jurisdcition over Diaoyutai -- is the correct answer and response.  China should land its fishermen and civilians on Diaoyu island.  More delay makes the traitors sound more and more persuasive.

OPPOSE APPEASEMENT OF NAZI JAPANESE THIEVES OF DIAOYUTAI!

Japan is giving its plants in China a topic to use as propaganda in weakening China's resolve to retake Diaoyutai.  This is a PEACE OFFENSIVE, not a bona fide peace initiative, and is bereft of any sincereity or goodwill.  Only fools and traitors would embrace such a farce.

Daioyu is Chinese territory.
There is nothing to compromise with the Japs.
Keep on the economic pressure is the best action the Chinese can take.
