A PLAN destroyer and frigate again passed between Okinawa and Miyakojima again.

A destroyer and a frigate from the Chinese Navy passed through international waters between Okinawa and Miyako on Sunday while en route to the Pacific Ocean, the Defense Ministry said.

It is the first time Chinese military vessels have been seen passing through the waters since April, when two submarines and eight other ships passed through, it said. (Link)

Short of an event like this sparking an international incident I’ll refrain from reposting these types of articles in the future. The Chinese Navy has to get to sea somehow, and Japan is just going to have to get used to the idea that China occasionally drives past its front yard. (Though ideally, with better manners than displayed in the past.)
