TOKYO  - Tokyo’s outspoken governor said Friday he would visit a group of islands at the centre of a bitter territorial dispute with China in a move that could inflame a heated diplomatic spat. Shintaro Ishihara, well known for his nationalistic views, said he planned to land on the uninhabited East China Sea archipelago - called Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese - in October. His announcement Friday comes as nationalistic sentiments have flared both in Japan and China after pro-Beijing activists who landed on the islands this month were arrested by Japanese police and later deported. Japanese activists and local legislators also landed on the Japanese-controlled islands.
