Japan will take all possible measures to ensure surveillance of the areas around disputed islands in the East China Sea, the top government spokesman said on Wednesday.

Chinese government ships have been seen near the islands, known as the Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, for 65 days in a row, the longest period since September 2012 when the Japanese government bought some of the tiny islands from private Japanese owners, Kyodo news agency reported.
