Abstract

After reviewing the origin and current deterioration of the territorial dispute for the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands involving Beijing and Taipei against Tokyo in the East China Sea, the paper presents and evaluates the distinction made by China between the United States of America as a newcomer in the crisis (with its full potential for further deteriorating or defusing tensions) and Japan as a much more proactive contender. Options for the United States of America as a possible constructive mediator between China and Japan over the archipelago are discussed.

摘要:本文在回顾北京、台北与东京之间围绕东海钓鱼岛/尖阁诸岛领土争端的起源和当前恶化的局势之后,提出中国认为在这场危机中,作为后来者的美国(拥有加剧或化解紧张局面的能力)和更积极竞争者的日本之间的区别。本文还讨论了美国在中日岛屿争端中进行建设性斡旋的可能性。
