China is to carry out a geographical survey of islands in the East China Sea at the centre of a bitter dispute with Japan.

The survey of the Diaoyu islands was part of a programme to map China’s “territorial islands and reefs”, Xinhua said, citing a state geographical agency. They are known as the Senkaku in Japan, which controls them.
