Taiwan presented a peace proposal aimed at easing mounting tensions in a territorial dispute over an island chain in the East China Sea also claimed by China and Japan.

The proposal, put forth by President Ma Ying-jeou, came after Japanese Defence Minister Satoshi Morimoto warned Tokyo could send troops to the island chain, known as Senkaku in Japan, Diaoyu in China and Diaoyutai in Taiwan.

Last month, coastguard vessels from Taiwan and Japan "bumped into" each other in waters near the disputed island chain, as the Taiwanese vessel was escorting activists to the area.
