'US won't intervene in China-Japan confrontation'
The United Stated is not likely to intervene in the event that China and Japan enters into a confrontation over the island called Daioyidao by the Chinese and Senkaku by the Japanese, a Chinese scholar projected.
As reported through the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, Wang Hanlin of the Academy of Social Sciences of China said in an international forum while the issue of the Senkaku Islands is included in the U.S.-Japan security agreement.
However, it will be difficult for the United States to intervene in confrontations between the two East Asian countries over the disputed island.
“As seen in the case of the British invasion of the Falkland Islands, the United States refrained from intervening despite the fact that the two countries are some of the closest allies in the world,” Wang told the forum.
