Japan and Vietnam to Boost Military Alliance Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Aug 3, 2014, 09:45 PM

Japan and Vietnam have agreed to boost the strength of their military alliance.

The BBC News reports that, "Japan says it will give Vietnam six naval ships for patrols in the South China Sea, amid regional tension over competing maritime claims with China. The offer, worth 500 million yen (£2.9 million, $5 million), was announced during a visit by Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida to Hanoi."

Japan is siding with Vietnam in a territorial dispute with China in the South China Sea.

According to the BBC, "China angered Vietnam when it moved an oil rig to disputed waters in May, sparking deadly protests in Vietnam. Japan and China both claim a string of islands known as Diaoyu or Senkaku."

Japan faces a number of teritorial disputes with neighboring countries in the region.
