Amid the deteriorating relations, Japan has decided to go all guns blazing against Chinese expansionism. Tokyo is reportedly planning to deploy missile units next year on an island that is merely 300 kilometres off the coast of Taiwan. Japan aims to counter China's increasing naval presence in the region. Tokyo's plans against China include deployment of the Ground Self-Defense Force missile units on the island of Ishigaki.
