Abstract

This chapter focuses on the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands. The involvement of the US in the China-Japan territorial dispute complicates the matter, as China recognises that its most important strategic relationship is with the US. China’s priority is thus to maintain high-level dialogues with the US on a broad range of issues, as well as the territorial disputes, in order to deemphasise the dispute with Japan. The chapter explains why the US is involved and posits future scenarios.
