Reportedly, the emissary of Abe, Yamaguchi, proposed as a first step prior to his arrival in China, that the two sides should consiider the airspace above Diaoyudao a "no fly zone" for the military planes of both countries.
Unfortunately, this proposal came AFTER Japan has violated China's airspace a dozen times with its military planes, nine at a time, and if China does not do the same, then it would appear that China has conceded military jurisdiction to Japan, even if henceforth both sides should no longer send their military planes to that air space. Therefore, this proposition can be said to be dead in the water.
China's sovereignty over Diaoyudao does not allow Japan to restrict the freedom of its civilian or military planes, ships or persons in the air, sea or land around or on Diaoyu island, by any kind of treaty, understanding, or coercion.
In short, China can assure Yamaguchi that if he flies over Diaoyudao, he will be considered a guest of China, and will be granted immunity from being shot down in the air, but that he, Yamaguchi, cannot require that China not fly any kind of its planes over the air space of Diaoyudao, on pain of being shot down by the japanese. In short, Japan has no enforcement rights over Dioayudao. To make matters simple going forward, China should simply fly a hundred military planes over Diaoyudao, to set the record stargiht, that China has military jurisdiction over Diaoyu island, while inviting Yamguchi to join and hop on one of the planes doing so, as a guest of China.
